Spurs To Break British Transfer Record To Land Huntelaar In January?
Tottenham Hotspur will have to find in excess of £30million if they want to sign prolific striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Ajax in the January transfer window.
However, it is understood that should Tottenham boss Juande Ramos make a move for Huntelaar in January. The North London club would have to offer more than £30million, with it claimed that the Eredivisie side have already turned down two bid of £30million for the former Heerenveen forward. One of which is believed to be Bundesliga club SV Hamburg, who are managed by former Spurs chief Martin Jol, according to Sport 1.
Huntelaar stated his desire to follow in the footsteps of Ruud van Nistelrooy earlier in the summer, and play in the Premier League, with it coming as no surprise that the striker has attracted interest from around Europe, having scored a phenomenal 70 goals in 83 games for Ajax.

So could it happen? Well, in financial terms it would surely be a possibility as most of what Ramos already spent was wisely covered by a mass exodus of deadwood and traitorous strikers fleeing the club. The Tottenham boss has worked marvels in the transfer window and would surely have some cash to splash. This would be one hell of an outlay, but one well worth making. If this signing was to realistically take place in January, however, then it would help greatly if the club wasn’t sitting too near the foot of the table as that may make such a move less likely. But Huntelaar, like many others, could surely see the potential at White Hart Lane and, under the Spaniard, I believe the club is heading in the right direction. Do Spurs fans think that such a move could become a reality?
