White Hart Lane boss wants Fulham man to solidify his back line.
Harry Redknapp is hoping to beat local rivals Arsenal to the signing of Fulham’s impressive central defender Brede Hangeland. The Tottenham boss is hoping that the promise of Champions League football, if secured, will tempt the Craven Cottage powerhouse to make the short move from west to north London.
The giant Norwegian centre back only recently signed an extension to his contract and has had a great season and has been pivotal to Roy Hodgson’s amazing success this term, culminating a potential place in the Europa League final.
The Spurs manager is looking for options to beef up a back line that is looking increasingly injury prone. Jonathan Woodgate, Ledley King and Michael Dawson have managed a total of just 41 Premier League starts between them and the addition of Sebastian Bassong last summer has proven a masterstroke but Harry is still looking for a solid pairing for his White Hart Lane side.
Hangeland has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Manchester City but put pen to paper on a new deal last November but that will not stop Redknapp from trying his luck with a bid rumoured to be in the region of £10m.
