Could there be a worse signing for Spurs than a former Arsenal AND West Ham player

Is it far fetched or a reasonable premise? Many Spurs fans point out that one of their clubs shortcomings, as well as needing a keeper, is some more creativity in the midfield. Well it appears that such a player may be on his way out of Upton Park….oh did I mention he used to play for Arsenal?

Apparently the Swede’s astronomical wages are a problem for the Hammers, they don’t want to keep giving the 30 year old 80k a week for at best, an average performance of a Saturday. Would Spurs fans take kindly to a former enemy among their ranks?

Aaron Lennon has been out of sorts and out of favour lately and while pacy his off the ball movement is pretty poor. There would be few better players to learn from than Ljungberg, who perfected the art under Wenger.

Even though he’s a bit crap now.
