Both Chelsea and Tottenham are keeping tabs on Croatian hitman Mario Mandžukić according to kicker.com The 25-year-old sharpshooter is currently playing his football in Germany with Wolfsburg and is believed to be a potential option for both Harry Redknapp and Andre Villas-Boas who may be eager to add to their ranks.
Didier Drogba has been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with a number of European clubs looming as possible destinations, while Nicholas Anelka’s future still remains in the balance. For Tottenham, Harry Redknapp has a headache dealing with Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermain Defoe. The former has expressed on a number of occasions his desire to leave White Hart Lane while the latter has been linked with a move to QPR to further his England ambitions.
Mario Mandžukić has been in deadly form this campaign by notching up 7 goals in 12 appearances, adding to his impressive 15 goals in 36 appearances since his arrival from Dinamo Zagreb back in 2010. Tottenham hold the advantage as they already boast three other Croatians in the team which could ultimately be the defining factor in swaying the 25-year-old to join Spurs over Chelsea.
