Arsenal Had Vieira…Now Tottenham Want Rieira

Most Spurs fans would argue that it’s the defence that needs to be addressed immediately, but the North London club have today been linked with a Spanish left-winger. Albert Rieira is hardly a household name in European football, despite recently making his debut for the national team. Man City fans will recall his loan spell at Eastlands last term.

“I do not say anything about those [stories].

“It does demonstrate that I am working at a good level.

“I know the Premier League and the competition has a lot of quality and it is not only about the money.”

Do Tottenham have problems on the left-side of midfield and would signing the Espanyol winger provide an instant solution? Like Benitez at Liverpool, it’s entirely possible that Ramos will stock up on a few Spaniards over the winter months. Was part of Levy’s thinking behind appointing the former Sevilla manager that it would attract some quality players from La Liga?
