The race for £40m rated Samuel Eto’o is beginning to reach boiling point, especially now the Cameroonian is once again going to complete a season without a winner’s medal of any kind and it appears that his Barcelona side is nearing breaking point as many of his teammates consider their futures at the Catalan club. Now another angle has emerged regarding Spurs interest in the star striker.

Ramos has made Eto’o his No1 target to replace Berbatov up front. Spurs are already resigned to losing the Bulgarian international, with Ramos expecting him to join Barcelona or Real Madrid.
It seems that Berbatov is very near the exit at WHL and many Spurs fans I have spoken to seem resigned to losing him. Would Eto’o represent a very real improvement or do Tottenham fans consider Berbs an all round better player to have at the club?
