With his two star strikers reportedly targeted by Liverpool and Manchester United Juande is now about to have bid to consider for one of his less important frontmen!
West Ham boss Alan Curbishley is reportedly weighing up a bid for Spurs striker Darren Bent.
Having sold Bobby Zamora to Fulham, Curbishley is ready bolster his forward line by signing Bent who is available for £10 million.
However the move will depend on whether or not Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov move to Liverpool and Manchester United respectively.
Darren Bent enjoyed his best years under Curbishley at Charlton, but is known to be keen to turn his Tottenham fortunes around by enjoying a good season and ridding himself of the £16m flop tag. (St Albans Review)
I guess it’s no surprise that everyone wants a Spurs striker of their own, after all going forward they were pretty irresistible last term, scoring a ton plus goals across all competitions. Bent has long since been considered as a very expensive flop, although he of course has nothing to do with the fee paid for his services and he managed to do okay when given the opportunities last season. Obviously any decision to sell the former Charlton man will greatly depend on the fate of Keane and Berbatov. I would imagine that unless both were sold (and that does seem unlikely) then Bent will still be surplus to requirements and if JR got an offer of £10m then I am sure he would take the cash in a flash! Do Spurs fans think that their club could really lose both halves of their celebrated front pairing?
