Tottenham, the Champions League’s newest English competitors, have become the epicenter of a myriad of speculation and rumour so far this post-season. The neoteric target within the Spurs acquisitive crosshair is UD Almeria’s Albert Crusat.
Crusat, a 28-year-old product of RCD Espanyol’s youth team, has been instrumental in keeping Almeria in Spain’s top-flight since their promotion three years ago.
Predominantly used as a left winger, Crusat’s ability to run at defenders with consummate control of the ball has already prompted Harry Redknapp to ponder the possibility of bringing him to White Hart Lane; Tottenham were heavily linked with the player last year but were warned off by Almeria’s club president Alfonso Garcia.
Harry is obviously extremely keen to acquire the player who managed to successfully find the net on seven occasions during 33 games last season and the asking price of around £2m is certainly far from an immovable obstacle for Tottenham’s increased, Champions-League-funded, wealth.
