Apparently Portsmouth are about to make a huge offer for one of Harry’s midfielders!
TONY ADAMS is ready to make a £10million raid for Tottenham midfield man Didier Zokora.
The Portsmouth boss sees the Ivory Coast star as the ideal replacement for Real Madrid-bound Lassana Diarra.
Spurs chief Harry Redknapp will be a reluctant seller as he has been impressed by the former St Etienne ace, who joined Tottenham for £8.2m in 2006.
But Redknapp may do business as he could use the £10m fee to strengthen his squad in other areas.
A Fratton Park insider said: “Tony has let it be known that he wants Zokora and he’ll be ringing his old boss Harry in a bid to try and thrash out a deal.” (News of the World)
Well we all heard the countless rumours of Portsmouth players heading to White Hart Lane so it’s interesting to hear of news of a player supposedly heading in the other direction. Firstly I was under the impression that the sale of Lassana Diarra was supposed to help ease the financial turmoil at the south coast club so it seems to make little sense then that Tony Adams would be given the lion’s share of the cash to spend on a replacement? Zokora has been a much improved player these last couple of months, bursting forwards on his accustomed 80 yard runs as well as battling manfully for the club. I don’t see Redknapp considering a sale of the Ivorian any time soon. Do Spurs fans think this deal could materalise?
