Spurs to bid for £14m Berbatov replacement: A very average striker!

Posted by

A week doesn’t go by without Ramos supposedly lining up a replacement for the seemingly exit bound Dimitar Berbatov, perhaps most worryingly is the fact that most of these ‘targets’ are nowhere near as good as the Bulgarian (with the exception of the rather hopeful attempts to sign Samuel Eto’o). This latest bit of tabloid speculation involves a very average signing indeed!

Spurs boss Juande Ramos has put £14m rated Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo at the top of his hit-list of replacements for Dimitar Berbatov. (Daily Mirror)

The lanky 25 year old may have had a decent strike rate in his first season at Benfica, but remember Helder Postiga! He too had a great record when he was at Porto before he left for WHL (and he wasn’t the best signing in the world was he!). I do not rate the Portuguese league that highly and therefore success at this level has to be questioned. Also the fee for the Paraguayan seems incredibly high and quite frankly he just doesn’t seem to be in the same league as Berbs and to me doesn’t seem to be good enough a striker for a Tottenham side looking to push on for a top four place. What do Spurs fans think about this latest striker linked with a move to WHL?
