Spurs linked with former striker as a Berbatov replacement: Forget Arshavin, THIS is the guy Juande wants!

All the talk about Russian striker Andrei Arshavin going to Tottenham is getting a bit old. So let’s add a new striker name to the rumour mill as a potential Berbatov replacement, shall we? This former Tottenham ace would be well worth the transfer sum to bring him back to White Hart Lane.

Juande Ramos is exploring the possibility of bringing former Tottenham striker Fredi Kanoute back to White Hart Lane as he prepares for the departure of Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester United.

Spurs will finally sell Berbatov to Manchester United and Ramos has urged sporting director Damien Comolli to sign the Sevilla striker.

Ok, now this is the kind of striker Juande wants back in his squad! Both Kanoute and Ramos know each other very well from their days at Sevilla, as well as Kanoute knowing the lay of the land at The Lane from his time at Tottenham in 2005. Unlike Arshavin who is unproven in the Premier League; Kanoute has the pace and the power to make an instant impact at his former club. Plus, with Ramos having ties to his former Spanish club, things might be a whole lot easier in the transfer negotiations department. Surely this has to be a player Spurs’ supporters would love to see come back home, right?

What do Tottenham supporters think about the link to Kanoute? Do you think he’d be a better option than Arshavin?
