Seems like Spurs are trying to make sure that Juande Ramos isn’t the only thing they nick from Sevilla, with rumours now flying that the London club are ready to steal Lazio’s Valon Behrami from under the Spanish side’s nose.
The player’s father has been quoted as saying:
“It seems that my son is going to Sevilla. I would prefer Tottenham, Hamburg or Bayern Munich though.”
While Behrami himself admitted:
“The position is complicated,” he said. “I hope to find a solution before the beginning of the European Championship as it would be important to free my head of the thoughts.”
Behrami can play right wing or right back, has good technique, tremendous workrate and quite incredible speed over distance. All things point to him being perfect for the counter-attacking game Juande Ramos likes to play.
Lazio have slapped a 10 million price tag on Behrami which, for those keeping score at home, is just over half a Darren Bent.
So are Spurs fans excited about this one?
