This source suggests that Spurs are going to make a move for one of the club’s most talented players.
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club are plotting a stunning January raid on Anfield says the Daily Mirror.
Harry Redknapp is looking to add more flair to his White Hart Lane squad in the New Year, and the Daily Mirror believe he has set his sights on Ryan Babel.
The Dutch international is becoming increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team opportunities at Liverpool, and recently asked Rafael Benitez for a return loan to Ajax. (Liverpool Daily Post)
Ryan Babel has voiced his displeasure of late about not getting enough first team starts and recently his cameo performances from the bench have been far less incisive than last term and this has of course led many to believe he could leave the club but I don’t see Rafa considering a sale of such an obviously talented player. Spurs would of course love to sign the Dutch wide man/striker but I think Redknapp knows that making a move would be pretty pointless and hopefully the youngster appreciates that given that the Mersey outfit is currently top of the table it is clearly a sign that Benitez knows what he is doing! Do Liverpool fans feel that Ryan will be an Anfield hero of the future or is he doomed to not fulfill his potential?
