This could prove to be a very wise move by Mr. Redknapp!
Sport.co.uk understands that Harry Redknapp has identified Arsenal’s Armand Traore, currently on-loan at Portsmouth as one of his top Summer targets, and the answer to Tottenham’s problem left midfield berth.
Redknapp is understood to hold Traore, who can play at left back or left midfield in high regard, and sees the winger as the ideal left sided player to bring balance to his Spurs midfield.
The French youngster has been in good form for Portsmouth this season, and has admitted he may have to consider leaving Arsenal for first team football following the emergence of Kieran Gibbs as understudy to Gael Clichy, and the signing of Andrei Arshavin. (sport.co.uk)
Armand has come on leaps and bounds at Fratton Park and is now widely regarded as one of the most exciting youngster plying their trade in the Premier League but as this source points out, he may struggle to get a place in the starting eleven at the Emirates so i am not surprised that Harry has shown an interest, after all it was he who brought him to Portsmouth on loan in the first place! The £9m rated who plays at full back rather than further up the pitch in my view, may well feel his future may lie elsewhere but would he make the move to arch rivals Spurs, well maybe he would and he would surely be welcomed by the White Hart Lane fans, especially if he does as well as he has at the south coast club. Do Tottenham fans welcome this speculation and hope he is targetted or would the signing be best avoided given the animosity between the two north London rivals?
