This source suggests that Harry Redknapp may consider raiding his near neighbours for an international who has a reputation as a trouble starter!
The Tottenham boss is aware Gallas’s future at the Emirates remains in doubt.
Manager Arsene Wenger has stripped Gallas of the captaincy and is reviewing the player’s future after he publicly accused team-mates of in-fighting, insulting behaviour and lacking bravery.
Gallas, 31, was in the Arsenal team that beat Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Tuesday and will be present for today’s visit to Chelsea
While publicly peace has broken out, Gallas still appears to be heading towards the Arsenal exit.
Spurs’ move for Gallas revives memories of Sol Campbell’s switch from White Hart Lane to join the Gunners in 2001. But signing an Arsenal player will not trouble Redknapp. (Daily Mirror)
Recent performances from the former Arsenal captain may well begin to ease the tension and fury that surrounding comments made by William Gallas so the idea that he may be on his way to White Hart Lane seems pretty impossible to me. It appears that this journo put one and one together and got three. Yes Spurs need a centre back or two, especially given the creaky state of Ledley King’s knees but I severely doubt the former Chelsea man would consider such a move. If he does leave the club it is far more likely it would be for a return home to France to see out his career but it could be that this whole debacle makes him a better player who will serve the Emirates side for a few more seasons yet. Do Gunners fans feel that Gallas should be kept or sold and do Tottenham supporters believe this deal could ever really happen?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
