White Hart Lane boss interested in Palermo and AC Milan swoops.

Tottenham have revived interest in Palermo striker Abel Hernandez.
The Uruguay youngster’s agent revealed an approach from Tottenham at the end of last season.
And it’s emerged Spurs have asked again for Hernandez ahead of the January market.
But like Arsenal’s enquiry last week, Spurs received short shrift from the Rosanero.
Tottenham have joined interest in AC Milan defender Daniele Bonera.
Bonera is being made available for transfer in January and has been offered to Fulham and Birmingham City by intermediaries.
However, with his defence hit by injury, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has also expressed interest in Bonera. (Tribalfootball.com)
We all know that Harry Redknapp loves to tinker so perhaps the two raids suggested by the source above are potentially possible and let’s face it there does seem a need to maybe bring in yet more central defensive back up after the White Hart Lane finds itself with a shed load of crocked centre backs.
A move for Daniele Bonera on that front would probably be fairly cheap. The 29 year AC Milan man is little more than back up at the San Siro and after four years of warming the bench he may like the idea of a new challenge but perhaps Tottenham would be better off trying to take the former Parma man on loan lest the club gets lumbered with an umpteenth option when everyone is fit.
Remember this is a club that currently has the following central defenders on it’s books. Ledley King, Jonathan Woodgate, Michael Dawson, Sebastien Bassong, Younes Kaboul, William Gallas and if need Vedran Corluka who can also play in the position.
As for Abel Hernandez. The Uruguayan youngster has been strongly linked with a move to north London but I would imagine that Redknapp would be more likely to bring in experienced striker if he decides to re-shape his attack. Also worth noting that the 20 year old is yet to score in Serie A action this term although has netted a few in the Europa League, albeit chiefly against inferior opposition.
The pair would set the club back around £12m and whilst Spurs may have cash to splash I don’t see this pair being the most likely to find their way to White Hart Lane in January.
