Former Trabzonspor striker Teofilo linked with Tottenham

Former Trabzonspor striker Teofilo Gutierrez has been linked with the  North London based side Tottenham.

Teofilo who currently plays for the Argentinian giants River Plate, is keen on a move to the Premier League.

“It is nice that important teams are interested. I hope it can become true,” Teofilo said.

Tottenham sent scouts to Argentina to watch the 29-year-old in action in his side’s clash against Velez Sarsfield last week.

The volatile striker has been valued at €7.5 million by his club.

Teofilo joined Trabzonspor in January 2010 for €1.4 million from Junior F.C. The Colombian international scored eight goals in 23 appearances for the Black Sea Storm.

The 29-year-old returned to Colombia without the permission of his club Trabzonspor. The Super League side subsequently accepted a €900k bid from the Argentinian side Racing Club.

Teofilo who featured for Colombia in the 2014 Wrold Cup has scored 11 goals in 16 appearances for River Plate this season.
