It’s another Thursday and here in the Football Transfer Tavern that usually means it’s time for our dose of Europa League football.
A few Tottenham supporters have already arrived into the bar ahead of their match against Anzhi Makhachkala tonight and they have been left rather stunned with the latest speculation about a possible January transfer target.
Regular in the tavern, Charles Perrin from The Express is claiming that Spurs are heading the queue to re-sign former striker Dimitar Berbatov when the transfer window opens next month.
The 32-year-old Bulgarian, who left White Hart Lane to join Manchester United in 2008, could be in line to make a shock return to the club as Andre Villas-Boas searches for more firepower in his attack.
Fulham are ready to sell the veteran striker with only six months remaining on his present deal at Craven Cottage although Spurs could face competition from West Ham United and even Arsenal.
One long-term transfer target who won’t be arriving at White Hart Lane is Leandro Damiao as Metro report that Internacional have accepted an offer from Santos for the striker.
The news has been met by a sense of resignation by the Lilywhites in the bar as after trying to sign the Brazilian ace for the last few transfer windows, they were hoping that Villas-Boas could move again for the 24-year-old.
It was even thought that a deal was agreed to see Damiao make the switch to North London but it fell through over confusing ownership issues. Now it appears that Villas-Boas has other targets in mind although here in the tavern we are unsure if re-signing Berbatov would be a wise move.
Would Berbatov be the answer to Spurs’ striking woes? Let us know your thoughts below.
