Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy ‘presented’ with chance to sign AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko

Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy ‘presented’ with chance to sign AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, via Sport Witness, Tottenham Hotspur, along with the likes of Man City, Barcelona and Real Madrid, were ‘presented’ with a chance to sign AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko in a January offer.

Indeed, the outlet claims that chairman Daniel Levy received a ‘knocking‘ on the door to take Dzeko from the Serie A giants this month, coming amid claims that the Bosnian has been at the centre of a fall-out with manager Paulo Fonseca.

Spurs presented Edin Dzeko

Roma, as a result, explored ways to offload the 34-year-old in January – with Levy and Spurs among the sides who received an offer to sign the towering 6 foot 4 striker.

However, as per this report, the Lilywhites appear to have turned down that chance, at least for now – possibly due to the presence of Carlos Vinicius and their alleged interest in a swoop for Danny Ings (Eurosport).

Transfer Tavern take

Despite Spurs apparently turning down the presented January proposal, Dzeko still has a lot to offer Premier League sides despite his age and lofty reported €7.5 million (£6.6 million) salary, which equates to around €144,000 (£127,000) per-week.

He possesses a wealth of English top-flight experience, winning two league titles with Manchester City, not to mention he has been recently lauded by Paolo Di Canio as a ‘leader’ and ‘extraordinary’ (Sky Sports via Area Napoli).

It’s unclear whether Spurs will perform a U-turn on this decision and consider Dzeko, but the last week of January should hold many twists and turns.
