Villas-Boas Close To Poaching £7M Rated Home Grown Talent

Written by: | Comments (63)

During their pre-season friendly on Saturday evening, Tottenham are said to have been impressed by Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, 17,and according to the Daily Mail, they are considering a £7.5 million bid for the youngster.

However, with QPR looking to loan the starlet for the season, it appears that the demand for the youngster is high.

Sterling previously played for QPR in the youth team, before moving to Liverpool two years ago. His sensational form in the FA Youth Cup, which saw him score 7 goals in two appearances for Liverpool.

With his talent being unquestionable, as demonstrated by his call ups to the senior team at only 17 years old, a £7.5 million price tag might raise a few eyebrows among the Spurs fans.

With the club only having one recognised striker, Jermain Defoe, and the start of the season being less than 3 weeks away, the frustration of the Tottenham fans is understandable.

But when looking at the senior Spurs squad, Danny Rose is the only player to have transferred from a different club at the age of 17, whilst Steven Caulker and Jake Livermore came through the youth system. But, Tom Huddlestone, Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale were all bought when they were young, at only 18 years old. Since then, they have established themseleves as key players for the club. Unfortunately for Huddlestone however, a serious injury has kept him out for majority of the season but is steadily improving his match fitness for the new Premier League campaign.

Despite this, Sterling would be the biggest transfer fee of the mentioned players above. Even though Bale would have cost Spurs £10 million over a long period of time depending on his league appearances, Southampton and Spurs agreed to an early pay off due to a poor financial period for the Saints, which saw a settlement of £7 million. With Lennon moving from Leeds for only £1 million, and Huddlestone  moving from Derby County for £2.5 million, if Sterling is to leave for Spurs, it wouldn’t appear to be such a risk when looking at the success of these young purchases.

Should Tottenham buy Sterling for £7.5 million? Leave your comments below.

        Calm down. No need for that my friend. We’re all here for the football. If you want to take your frustrations out on someone for your poor performance over the last few seasons you need to be looking right back at your own club. Don’t go about giving abuse to others.

      I’ve got a semi-on now.. I could see it happen as much as i can see it not happening.

      On another note – them liverpool fans make me laugh. Get over it – you were once great, however, now you’re quite average. Everton are a better team.

        Avb??? Have spurs stolen avb from liverpool?? Why do you still get on gylfis back? Rodgers fored his departure from swansea, and i am sure he got a bigger wage! That makes rodgers a money horse, and liverpool do not want those!!?? Muppet. And liverpool are not as good as spurs. 8th is not as good as 4th.

        I can’t think of one single reason why Gylfi chose you lot over us. Must be because Villas-Boas did so well at Chelsea when he was there!

    Spurs fans are deluded, yes we are rivals and yes were are still a much much bigger club than Spurts. 3 seasons of finishing above us has you deluded, this is our worst period for 50 years and we still reach cup finals and win our share. What about Spurs???? nothing Champs league 2 x. This season will see you go backwards with not much investment and your best player wanting out will see Spurts go back to being mid table for the next 20 years, you watch.

      spend another 35m on a player worth about 9m! dont talk about investment. Our squad is young and experienced. We will sell luka for 40m and then buy 2 players. You are I am afraid, a top ten club we are a top four. Everton are the same as you.

    This will happen i no Sterling has refused to sign a new contract and he wants to move back down London. This deal will be done and the money used for Allen Liverpool will get a good deal for a lad aged 17.

        #LFC, You are the ones that are deluded, you havent been near us for 3 seasons. 3. not one or even two 3. This makes Spurs a much better club for stars who want Champ Lg and potential of league. You manager has won nothing. so, we have better manager on paper, we have more funds to spend and new training ground, but mainly the reason sig and sterl will come, its LONDON, its the best city in the world, Liverpool, full of pikeys in trackies. Nothing against your club but most players would like to be in london.
