This source suggests that the north London outfit is planning one hell of a double swoop!
Tottenham are planning an ambitious move for Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli – and Adriano.
Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter are willing to sell Balotelli for £18 million and Spurs are ready to meet the asking price in January. Indeed, the Londoners hope to wrap up a deal in the first days of the winter market to trump competition from the likes of Villarreal and Real Madrid.
And Spurs are also interested in Adriano, who will be sold at the end of the season. Inter are seeking a knockdown £7 million for the Brazilian and Tottenham are eager to do business. (tribalfootball.com)
Whilst it’s true that both these Inter men could well be set to leave Jose Mourinho’s San Siro outfit, it would be quite incredible if Harry Redknapp manages to snare either or indeed both of these star performers. Adriano has been out of favour at the Serie A champions for a while now, even during Roberto Mancini’s reign, and the Brazilian international has been linked with a move to many Premier League sides including Arsenal and Liverpool.
Balotelli is another striker with unresolved issues at Inter; those concerns mainly surround the teenager’s demands for an improved contract. Do Tottenham fans think that the club could well pull off this coup, or has this source just got a bit carried away with the speculation?
