Tottenham eye Krasic, but may give up on Man City’s Adebayor
Tottenham may not even have a manager by the summer if the odds are correct and Harry Redknapp takes the England job – but that hasn’t stopped there being plenty of rumours circulating about the north London side.
According to talkSPORT, Spurs are chasing Juventus winger Milos Krasic, with the Serbian out of favour with his current club, Juventus.
However, the player’s agent, Vlado Borozon, had revealed that Spurs will have to spend big if they are to prise the player away from Italy.
“Juventus intend to at least recover the €15.5m they spent on signing Krasic,” said Borozon.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail is considering scrapping their plans to permanently sign striker Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City.
Despite having a very decent loan season at Spurs, wages remain a stumbling block, with Adebayor currently picking up £170,000-a-week from Man City and he is unwilling to take a significant cut to join Spurs.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is now allegedly losing patience with the Togolese player and is thought to be considering other striking options as they gear up for a probable assault on the Champions League next season.
Marseille striker Loic Remy and Villarreal forward Giuseppe Rossi are both thought to be options as the north London side seek out cheaper and, arguably, better options.
Spurs have been going through a tough time of things on the pitch in recent weeks too, with Redknapp’s men now five games without a victory in the league.
They are still expected to qualify for the Champions League though and are currently priced at 1/8 to make it back into Europe’s elite competition.
