Tottenham hold out for big game
Monday 31 January 2011
Tottenham Hotspur may yet stage the biggest surprise of the transfer window today with the club still in the market for a £20m-plus big-name striker that would break their transfer record.
Harry Redknapp played down the possibility of a signing yesterday but Spurs have retained an interest in the Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi, who scored the winner against Espanyol yesterday, as well as Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid) and Fernando Llorente (Athletic Bilbao).
Spurs, beaten 4-0 by Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round, were serious contenders for Edin Dzeko until the player chose Manchester City and are not working under the usual limitations set by chairman Daniel Levy. They are expected to work on a deal right up until tonight's 11pm deadline.
