Redknapp wants Drogba and Parker
Saturday 21 May 2011
Harry Redknapp, the Tottenham Hotspur manager, will hold a meeting with chairman Daniel Levy next week to outline his intention to target established Premier League players such as Didier Drogba and Scott Parker this summer.
Redknapp has been abroad recently to monitor Lille midfielder Eden Hazard and Espanyol forward Pablo Daniel Osvaldo but would prefer targets already accustomed to English football. "I like Hazard, I watched him this week and he is a good player but there's a few lads over here I would like to go for," he said.
Drogba would be the top of Redknapp's list if Chelsea make him available, while Arsenal and Liverpool will compete for Parker. "I think we lack one or two strong characters," he said.
