Ramos is running the rule on this in-form Spaniard, but surely there are better players on the market more likely to make an impact at White Hart Lane?
Alvaro Negredo, the Almeria striker who has scored five times in six La Liga appearances this season, is the latest forward linked with a move to goal-shy Tottenham.
The former Spain under-21 international tops Spurs boss Juande Ramos’s shopping list for January, as he seeks to bolster his goal-shy squad.
Negredo has told the Spanish media that he is excited by a possible move to the English Premier League, where he wants to try to emulate Liverpool’s Spanish striker, Fernando Torres.

Whilst Negredo may be the flavour of the month in La Liga, he doesn’t strike me as the kind of signing that will appease the fans. After all, the young Spaniard will hardly be an effective replacement for Keane or Berbatov, regardless of just how much potential he may or may not have.
The one most realistic target to have emerged in recent weeks who could go some way to making up for the loss of their top strike pairing is Lukas Podolski, he would be a far better bet than the Almeria lad. The latter essentially had a good season and a half, but would surely not be the kind of striker that could be depended upon to fire Spurs back up the table.
Who do Spurs fans want to see Ramos bring in to ease their attacking concerns?
