Spurs Scouts Spotted Watching £10M Playmaker – Again

Harry Redknapp has sent another message of his intention to sign highly-rated young striker Connor Wickham from Ipswich, after he sent Spurs scouts to Portman Road to run the rule over the 17-year-old.

Interest in Wickham has been building for some time and White Hart Lane seems the most likely destination for the rangey forward, after favourite for his signature, Harry Redknapp, had his talent-spotters out again during Ipswich’s 1-1 draw with Hull City.  The youngster had a good game for the Tractor Boys, and following his spectacular hat-trick in Town’s 6-0 mauling of Doncaster Rovers last week, his stock is continually rising.

Redknapp, who loaned Robbie Keane to West Ham in January, is clearly unhappy with the input of his forwards in the league; following last night’s dreadful 3-1 defeat to Blackpool the Spurs manager was incredulous,

“We missed chance after chance after chance.  I’ve never seen so many open goals missed in my life. You can’t miss eight open goals and expect to win.”

With Tottenham’s strikers failing to impress in the Premier League this season, the summer addition of Wickham would bolster the forward line at White Hart Lane, and would see Redknapp take control of one of the hottest up-and-coming talents in the English game.
While Wickham is not an out and out goal-scorer, the craft and technique of his game, considering his age, mark him out as a youngster with great potential, and despite the interest of Damien Comolli at Liverpool, Spurs are in the driving seat to pay the £10m Ipswich are likely to want for their forward.
