Ramos is apparently set to try the mother of all double swoops in January as he looks to raid Bayern Munich when the transfer window re-opens!
Tottenham according to sources close to the club are preparing a double swoop for Luca Toni and Lukas Podolski to try and bolster up their impotent forward line. (footylatest.com)
Tottenham had been linked with a move for 23-year-old Podolski all summer and will be heartened by the strikers comments on Thursday, where the former FC Koln striker revealed that he will have to make a decision in the winter on his future at the Allianz Arena if he continues to only play a bit part for Bayern under coach Jurgen Klinsman.
It now appears that not only will Spurs make a move for Podolski, but also Toni (left), who is the player keeping Podolski out of the starting line-up at Bayern. (Premiershiplatest.com)
This Bayern pair are valued in the £30-35m bracket and they are both proven performers who would surely be fantastic signings if the north London club can persuade them to leave the Bundesliga club. Toni may be no spring chicken at 31 but he is at his peak after scoring 24 goals as he helped his club to the title in his debut season last term and has knocked in three this season. Podolski would be an awesome purchase as well and he has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League with Spurs and Manchester City being the main contenders for his signature. It would be quite a coup if the White Hart Lane outfit managed to snare one or both of these two but it could prove hard to clinch the deal if by January the side is still propping up the table. Do Spurs fans think that this pair could be the answer to their prayers or are there bigger changes needed at the club?
