Spurs to make SHOCK £15m striker bid: I think this one is paper talk!

As Juande Ramos takes stock after a pretty poor display against Middlesbrough, reports have surfaced about a Tottenham bid for a Newcastle star!

Why not continue this discussion at the COS forum?

Ex-Liverpool striker Michael Owen has been lined up as a shock replacement for Dimitar Berbatov at Tottenham, according to reports.

Tottenham bosses have targeted the Newcastle United captain to fill the boots of Berbatov boots, who is expected to move to Manchester United before the transfer window closes.

The Sunday Express says Tottenham have kept a close eye on Owen’s future on Tyneside and see him as an ideal replacement for the wantaway Bulgarian.

Owen’s career on Tyneside has been beset by injury but he did enjoy a good finish to last season. (Lancashire Evening Post)

£15m-rated Michael Owen has of course been plagued with injuries but still has a great deal to offer. He could still be a 20-goals-a-season marksman if he managed to not get sidelined and in many ways he is the kind of sharp marksman that Spurs could do with if Dimitar Berbatov does as expected leave for Old Trafford. Of course Kevin Keegan won’t want to sell but maybe the former Liverpool man will deem a move to north London a move up. After all there can be no doubting that Tottenham now have a fantastic squad and a great manager who should help them make a dent on the top six whereas work at pushing Newcastle United up the ladder is still ongoing however i do think this is just crazy paper talk, i am not sure he is the type of striker Ramos is looking for and it appears to be a deal Tottenham aren’t even considering so the Sunday Express (Where this story appears to have originated from) probably made up the story in the first place! Who do Spurs fans think that Juande should try to sign?
