Harry Redknapp is preparing bids for Lyon midfielder Jean Makoun and Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez as he looks to put the finishing touches on a White Hart Lane squad that is mounting a genuine push for major honours. The Tottenham manager is helping to make space for new additions by looking to offload, either permanently or on loan, the likes of David Bentley, Robbie Keane, Jamie O’Hara and Jonathan Woodgate.
German international Mario Gomez was not initially a first choice starter at the Allianz Arena but Louis Van Gaal has had to readjust his opinion of the lanky striker after a fine run of form, however the former Stuttgart man is still considering his options and recently stated his desire to ply his trade in England and was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
A move to Tottenham would surely be even more of a pull for the 25 year old who has netted 20 goals in all competitions this season. Harry Redknapp is hoping to bring in another striker in January and given that Bayern Munich are out of the title race, 14 point from runaway leaders Borussia Dortmund, Gomez may be very interested in a move to north London.
Lyon star Jean Makoun is a player that Redknapp has chased for some time and given the poor form shown by Wilson Palacios, the need for a new defensive midfielder appears to have grown and therefore the Spurs boss has been monitoring the progress of the 27 year old Cameroon international.
A move for the pair would run to around £35m and Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has made it clear that any additions will only be sanctioned once the expansive squad and its wage bill are reduced.
