According to this source, and many others, Juande Ramos is about to receive a hefty bid for a midfielder who only just arrived at White Hart Lane a few months ago!
The Bianconeri, like Spurs in the Premier League, have been struggling badly in Serie A. Many of their problems have stemmed from the lack of bright sparks in midfield.
Sporting director Alessio Secco has already looked at a few players based in England including Liverpool’s Xabi Alonso but the alarm bells are ringing from White Hart Lane as Modric has failed to make an impact following his £16m move from Dinamo Zagreb in the summer.
Secco is a keen admirer of the Croatian international and he is about to put his foot in it again as he is prepared to splash a massive €38m on the midfielder. (goal.com)
It would be fair to say that the impish Croat hasn’t exactly set the Premier League on fire, but he is a very talented player who was always going to take a while to bed into the top tier of English football, having only had experience in his native domestic league. I am not surprised that he is strongly linked with a move to the Serie A side, but I severely doubt that Luka would quit so soon and that the north London club would even sanction such a move.
Do Spurs fans think that the club needs more new faces in January, or will the club just have to patiently let their new signings get accustomed to playing alongside each other?
