Not that I would dare call ‘Arry a wheeler-dealer, but the Spurs Manager can never let a transfer window pass without taking action. It’s his addiction, ‘just….one…more……versatile midfielder’.
The player in question this time is Omar El Kaddouri, of Seria B’s Brescia. talkSport understands that Spurs are hopeful they can beat the likes of Barca and Arsenal to the punch, and seal a deal for the player before the end of January.
The player is valued at around £3 million, but with other clubs hovering Brescia will likely try to get at least £5 million for the player.
But do Spurs need him?
He has certainly impressed this season, and is seen as one of Italy’s hottest prospects. But White Hart Lane is overflowing with talented, versatile midfielders, and El Kaddouri would surely find it hard to get ahead of Huddlestone or Livermore let alone reach the first team.
Then again, at just 21, and with a fairly small fee, it’s a low risk transfer for Redknapp, and snapping up any player Barca and Juve are watching is surely a good sign.
Spurs fans, let us know what you think?
