Ramos is looking into a potentially wise investment for a striker that is not exactly a household name…yet!
The heroics of TSG Hoffenheim striker Vedad Ibisevic this season has attracted interest from Tottenham.
The 24 year-old Bosnia international is seen by Spurs as an ideal replacement for Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov and is emerging as a top January transfer target.

Up until this summer the name Vedad Ibisevic would mean very little to the footballing masses but after a dream start to the Bundesliga season the Bosnian is suddenly a wanted man. After helping Hoffenheim to promotion to the top tier of German football for the first time last term he has gone into overdrive netting seven goals in seven games and has taken the country’s answer to Wimbledon to the dizzy heights of second place (just behind Martin Jol’s Hamburg SV). Now the £6m rated striker has to deal with a new found fame following a hit and miss career that has seen him play in the MLS and at the likes of PSG before settling in at the Southern German side. A signing of this type may well be a better way to go rather than spending big again in January. The relatively small outlay may be the best bet as the club would have a snared a player who is in the form of his life and could help spark some life in their attacking play. Do Spurs fans think a smaller purchase of a player such as Vedad would make more sense than simply splashing their cash on a big player?
