The 24-year-old Espanyol player is well rated in Spain with Márquez proving instrumental in the club’s rise to 6th in La Liga.
Harry has been watching the lad since last April but a variety of sources are reporting Redknapp has just placed a £5million bid for his services.
This should put Wigan on red alert who have also been weighing up a bid for the Spaniard’s services come January.
However, Márquez has attempted to distance himself from any speculation.
“If you start reading newspapers and paying attention to these things it will distract me and that is not what I want.” He told Spanish Newspaper, Marca.
“I do not know about the interest of teams in the Premier League and I have no books in English.”
Yet again, regardless of the lad’s talent I find myself perplexed as to why Spurs need ANOTHER midfielder. They have such talent at White Hart Lane and I can’t bring myself to understand the point.
However, with the increasing speculation surrounding the very possible exit of Niko Kranjcar, Harry may have already given up hope of keeping the Croatian international and may be looking elsewhere for a replacement.
“I really wouldn’t want to lose him, but I do understand where he’s coming from as well,” said Redknapp on the prospect of losing Kranjcar.
So perhaps it’s one out, one in come January at the North London club. I wonder what Spurs fans make of all this?
This from our sister brother by another mother site, Harry Hotspur.
An impassioned and dare we say thoughtfully written piece that may cause some Tottenham fans to at least consider the unthinkable – leaving The Lane.
‘I began yesterday by referring to this whole affair as a fiasco.
And after dwelling on the matter I’ve confirmed it to myself. The whole idea of ‘relocating’ and staying where you are defies sanity. It is (to quote Chief Wiggum, or was it George Bush Jnr – I watch so many cartoons – I forget) unpossible.’
