GONZALO HIGUAIN BELIEVES SPURS OR WEST HAM COULD SIGNATURE A STAR.
Alvarez, like Higuain, rose through River Plate's ranks.
Whether the former can follow in the footsteps of the latter and become one of Europe's most feared marksmen is a question only he can answer.
THIS SEASON, WE'RE RANKING EVERY PREMIER LEAGUE TEAM'S YOUNGEST PLAYER.
According to sources, Alvarez is a January target for the aforementioned Premier League three, as well as Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Borussia Dortmund, thus the Argentina international will almost probably be given the chance to follow in Higuain's footsteps on this side of the Atlantic.
JULIAN ALVAREZ WILL JOIN WHICH PREMIER LEAGUE CLUB?
This season, Alvarez has 17 goals in 19 games, four of which came in a 5-0 thrashing of CA Patronato.
He is River Plate's top striker, according to Higuain.
He has 20 goals and is wanted by half of Europe.
That may be a slight exaggeration, but not by much.
Since the turn of the year, Aston Villa has been scouting Alvarez. West Ham, Spurs, and a slew of other clubs from Milan to Madrid will now compete for Steven Gerrard's Villa, according to Calciomercato and El Intransigente.

I saw his movements and how he uses both feet. I see him as being comparable to me in terms of his hunger, drive to succeed, and want to learn, says Higuain.
I like him in every manner, from the way he plays to his modesty, and I'm glad he's doing well.
Alvarez's contract has a £21 million release clause, but River Plate are hopeful of reaching an agreement with him on a new, long-term contract.
The 21-year-old, who made his name as a right-winger before being converted to a central striker, has been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo for his ability to score with both feet.
