..If they sign Tal Ben Haim that is…Sun journo Andrew Dillon is bellowing in our faces with the glorious headline: Ram raid for £8m Ben Haim..Yep you read it here second, Tottenham’s Juande Ramos is after Chelsea’s Israeli centreback Tal Ben Haim. The Spaniard believes that if he waves £8million under the noses of the Chelsea big-wigs they will allow the Israel star to leave and that Ben Haim will be able to shore up Spurs’ porous defence.
“Ramos is desperate for reinforcements in defence and Israeli ace Ben Haim is ready to call it quits at the Blues after an unhappy first six months at the club.
“Chelsea’s £8.9m swoop for Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic last week has confirmed to Ben Haim, 25, that his Stamford Bridge future is bleak.
“With skipper John Terry sidelined with a broken foot, Ben Haim was hoping to get more first-team action.”
And with Ramos turning his nose up at Younes Kaboul and Michael Dawson he has pinpointed Tal Ben Haim as a potential partner for Tottenham captain Ledley King.
