Juande Ramos has probably been the busiest manager in the transfer window and according to this source he isn’t finished yet! Now he is lining up a last-gasp bid for this Portsmouth star!
Lassana Diarra will sign for Tottenham tomorrow if cashstrapped Portsmouth fail to offload a number of squad players.mPompey boss Harry Redknapp is faced with having to cash in on his star man after being told by the board to slash the wage bill.
Redknapp now has until the transfer window shuts at midnight tomorrow to flog a fringe player such as Richard Hughes or accept a £12million bid from Tottenham for midfielder Diarra. Juande Ramos is desperately looking to add some steel to his midfield and Diarra fits the bill.
Redknapp has been left frustrated by Portsmouth’s Russian owner Alexandre Gaydamak giving him a small budget during the summer after their FA Cup winning year. (The People)
Diarra, 23, is a class act, an accomplished midfield battler with vision and guile and the kind of player that would be one hell of a White Hart Lane capture. Harry Redknapp will be loathe to lose the Frenchman who has had a big impact on the recent success at Fratton Park. Do Spurs fans think this source is accurate? Do Pompey fans feel they can cut their wage bill in other ways rather than selling one of their prized assets?
