Spurs about to sign Gilberto from Hertha Berlin

Spurs manager Juande Ramos is searching for players throughout Europe to bolster his squad and he finally seems to have embarked on a player who could be lured to the troubled White Hart Lane. Sky Sports reports that Tottenham Hotspur are eager to sign the Brazilian international full back Gilberto from German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin.

The Brazilian’s contract runs out at the end of the season and although Hertha are inclined to deal a new contract with the player, in all probabilities Gilberto will leave for greener pastures.

Spurs are short of quality defenders and Ramos is certain to change that this month. The Spaniard is said to deeply interested in importing Gilberto as soon as he can. Gilberto might not be a household name in the football community but he is certainly a quality full back who would have made the Brazilian first team on a regular basis had there been not too much traffic before him. Gilberto would be a sensible signing for Ramos.
