Here Is The City claim that Rafa Benitez is willing to let the Spaniard leave this summer, but only if their £10m valuation is met by any potential buyer.
It has been no secret that Mauricio Pochettino is keen to add to his attacking options ahead of the new season in August, and Perez could be seen potentially as a cheaper option with experience of playing in England’s top league.
Spurs have also been linked with overseas strikers such as Vincent Janssen, and have had a bid thrown back at them for the front man, and could turn their attention to Perez if their pursuit for Janssen is unsuccessful.
With Clinton N’Jie misfiring for the most part of last season, Spurs will be looking provide the opportunity for furthur squad rotation, but also to take the pressure off of Harry Kane. Spurs will also have the importance of the Champions League to deal with as well as the Premier League.
Pochettino is reportedly keen on the Spaniard due to his ability to play all the way across the front line, and sees this versatility as a great asset and a characteristic that the Argentine values highly and likes to see in his players.
Spurs are reportedly leading the race for the striker ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton, who are all vying for his signature.
I would see Perez as a good signing for Spurs, and I think he can operate as an impact striker as well as somebody that can feature strongly in the starting eleven. However, I do think that Perez should not be the only attacking addition made this summer, and we would need more support for Harry Kane next season, should things not quite work out for Perez.
