Spurs eyeing new enforcer.
Tottenham are being linked with a move for Partizan Belgrade midfielder Mohamed Kamara, thanks to European football aficionado Avram Grant.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, Grant who was manager of the Serbian club last season, has been giving Spurs chairman Daniel Levy glowing reports about the defensive midfielder.
Although Grant endured a disastrous time at West Ham he is still a respected figure in the game after guiding Partizan to the Serbian title and taking Chelsea to a within a whisker of Champions League glory during his Stamford Bridge tenure.
Spurs already have Scott Parker, Sandro and emerging talent Jake Livermore in the position Kamara favours but, with Andre Villas Boas listed as head coach, the purchasing of players may be left to a higher power at White Hart Lane.
The football world seems to be awash with former Chelsea bosses.
Tottenham Hotspur, at least, can’t seem to get away from them. Not only are Spurs managed by a former Chelsea boss (Andre Villas-Boas) but another former Chelsea boss (Avram Grant) seems to be recommending them players to replace their star man – Luka Modric – who is wanted by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho of Real Madrid and former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelloti of PSG.
Thankfully, former Chelsea boss former Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink of mega-rich Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala is yet to enter the bidding…
On a serious note, as the source point out, Tottenham Hotspur already have Scott Parker, Olympic hero Sandro and Jake Livermore to fill the holding midfield role and the north Londoners surely have other, more pressing concerns this summer.
Spurs desperately need a striker (or two), with Jermain Defoe currently the only recognised, senior forward on their books and a ‘keeper and a winger to cover to Aaron Lennon. Villas-Boas is also reportedly keen on a new ‘keeper, suggesting the Portuguese has not seen enough in ageing stars Brad Friedel and Carlo Cudicini or the erratic Heurelho Gomes to suggest they are long-term solutions between the sticks.
