When perusing the gossip columns you usually find the same names being linked with moves over and over again, but that is not the case with the latest reported Tottenham target.
Anyone looking at the Dutch rumour mill today would have noticed the latest piece of speculation being conjured by Voetbal International.
The outlet reports that Spurs are looking at the possibility of signing FC Utrecht’s Sebastien Haller, leading to many in England wondering just who he is.
Haller is a 21-year-old French forward who has scored 21 times in 31 appearances across all competitions this season for the Eredivisie outfit, with 16 of those coming in the league.
This is his second campaign at the Stadion Galgenwaard, having played on loan from Auxerre last term.
During his first spell, Haller found the net 11 times in 17 Eredivisie games and was voted by fans of the club as their player of the season.
He’s carried on his prolific career this term and it is unsurprising to see a big European side interested in securing his signature.
Furthermore, it is not only at club level where the 21-year-old has shone and he is beginning to make a name for himself on the national scene as well.
The Utrecht striker has represented France from Under-16 to Under-21 level and has demonstrated his keen eye for goal for his homeland as well.
In particular, he has proved his worth in Les Bleus’ U21 team, scoring nine goals in his 13 appearances for Les Espoirs.
Standing over six feet tall, Haller can be used as a target man and he wins over half of his aerial duels to make himself a threat, both in terms of getting goals himself and setting up others.
Harry Kane plays upfront on his own for Spurs so it is unlikely the Utrecht youngster would get too many starts at White Hart Lane, but he would be a useful rotation option.
