According to this source, the spending at White Hart Lane isn’t over! Juande Ramos is still looking to sign these three top quality players!
Tottenham will turn their attentions to signing Ajax striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar once they have secured the transfer of Spartak Moscow’s Roman Pavlyuchenko.
Spurs agreed a deal worth around £16million with the Russian club on Tuesday night and are determined to add at least one more forward – with the Holland international top of their list – before the transfer window closes on Monday.
Pavlyuchenko has been on Tottenham’s wanted list throughout the summer and the Russia star has pulled out of Spartak Moscow’s Champions League qualifier with Dynamo Kiev to finalise the switch.
The club are also making a major push for Huntelaar and haven’t given up on Zenit St Petersburg’s Andrei Arshavin and Vedran Corluka from Manchester City. (Mail Online)
So it seems, to this source at least, that Tottenham are looking to spend even more money. However it’s not as crazy as it seems; most of what the club has spent this summer has been covered by sales as Ramos has played the transfer market very intelligently. If the club opts to sell Berbatov, then that would bring in around £25m which would definitely cover one of the two strikers and maybe Corluka as well.
Of course the Daily Mail may just be feeding speculation but with Roman signed up, things do look better for the club that was dependent on Darren Bent to spearhead the attack. Even though he had a great pre-season, playing up front on his own has proved problematic over these first two games. Do Spurs fans think that the Mail is correct and that all three of these targets could come to the club?
