Redknapp target on his way out at San Siro?
Shortly after arriving, the Netherlands striker Klaas Huntelaar could leave AC Milan in the winter.
Due to a disastrous start to the season with only 9 points from 7 matches and in 12th place AC Milan could decide to dispense with the services of Dutchman who arrived in the summer for 15 million euros. Those approached to replace Klaas include Russian Pavlyuchenko (Tottenham), Italy’s Luca Toni (Bayern Munich) and Brazilian Adriano (Flamengo) are approached to join the Rossoneri. (Eurosport)
Whilst its a dangerous game to put one and one together, this particular combination of stories does seem to make at least some sense. Tottenham forward Roman Pavlyuchenko, though hard working and a fan favourite, doesn’t appear to have much in the way of a future at White Hart Lane and then we have Klaas Jan Huntelaar who has been something of a flop at AC Milan, on his way out, who was of course strongly linked with a move to north London.
The 26 year old former Real Madrid and Ajax man has yet to score in Serie A this term and the club’s very poor start to the season, coupled with the loss of Kaka in the summer, have led to a lot of unrest at the San Siro and Huntelaar could well be on his way.
Would a swap be of any use to Harry Redknapp though? Having already got three top notch frontmen in the form of Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch, perhaps all they need is a fourth striker in the form of an up and coming youngster of an experienced striker who doesn’t mind coming off the bench.
