Poor performances in recent weeks have seen the North London club drop from third to fourth in the Premier League table, and Redknapp knows this summer’s activity in the transfer market could prove pivotal in the race for Champions League football next season….
Harry Redknapp has been an admirer of the former CSKA Moscow winger for some time and attempted to bring him to White Hart Lane in January. However, Krasic turned the move down in order to continue his career in Italy. Milos Krasic is ready to leave Juventus, according to his agent.
It now seems more likely that he will move on this summer, as his agent Vlado Borozan is quoted by Tribal Football as telling TMF: ‘Surely he will leave at the end of the season. We’re already discussing it.’

The Serbian international has experienced a mixed debut season for the Italian giants, scoring just eight times in 40 appearances for the club. Spurs had a loan request for the Serb turned down by Juve in January and Harry Redknapp will now try and entice the right sided midfielder with an offer of a permanent move.
Where it has been rumoured that Krasic is open to the possibility of heading back to Russia, he has made it no secret that he’d also relish the chance to test himself in the Premier League. His trickery and pace could see him settle into the Spurs fold effortlessly if given the chance by Redknapp.
Krasic has just under 50 caps for Serbia and will offer fierce competition to Aron Lennon, whose form this season has been questionable at times. Harry knows that if Spurs are to have a realistic chance of going for the title next season they will have to invest heavily.
Poor performances from the North London club now leaves them on the same amount of points as the season’s surprise package, Newcastle. It’s argued that Spurs have lacked the strength in depth to mount a proper attack on the Premier League title, and Redknapp knows that spending big on the likes of Krasic and others will only improve their bid for next season.
