Over the years, the South American continent has become the hub for producing some world-class talents. Some of the finest attackers in the game of football currently, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Luis Suarez, Gonzalo Higuaín, Alexis Sanchez and the list goes on and on.
So, it is not a surprise that the teams across Europe have been scouting the South American markets extensively to get their hands on the next best talents that will emerge from the region. Tottenham Hotspur too have been known to keeping their eyes on talents coming from these parts with many promising attackers linked with a move to the White Hart Lane over the recent years.
Here we take a look at three gifted footballers from South America, who Tottenham should target in the summer of 2017:
The 20-year old River Plate forward has been linked with a move to the White Hart Lane in this window, but there has been little progress in terms of negotiations, but Spurs could come back for him in the summer.
Driussi has been in hot form for the Millionarios this season in the Primera Division and has already netted 10 times in 14 appearances this term and finished as the league’s top scorer as the club went into the summer break.
A youth team international for Argentina, Driussi is considered one of the continent’s most talented young footballers and has attracted strong interest from Juventus in the past. Strong in the air, excellent finisher and a good dribbler, the 20-year old is a fine prospect and could turn out to be a brilliant piece of business for Tottenham if signed.
