Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane have both been strongly linked with a WHL exit and, whilst this talk could well be mere tabloid rubbish, clearly JR is looking at alternatives. However is this guy good enough?
Tottenham boss Juande Ramos may be about to launch a £9.5million raid for Espanyol hitman Luis Garcia.
With his current strike partnership of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane reportedly looking to be on the verge of quitting the club, Ramos is keen to bring 27-year-old Garcia to White Hart Lane as a replacement.
He becomes the latest in a long line of potential signings from La Liga linked with a move to north London.

It does seem highly unlikely that Ramos would lose both his world-class strikers, and that Robbie Keane has reportedly not asked for a move away from White Hart Lane. However JR may well have to plan on replacing Dimitar, as the saga surrounding the Bulgarian seems to continue to simmer. Garcia is not exactly prolific but clearly Spurs’ Spanish boss rates him. Ramos knows the La Liga inside out, so just because he isn’t a household name may not mean he isn’t suitable. Are Tottenham fans worried about the future of their free-scoring strike pairing?
