Tottenham Poised for Intelligent £11.5m Swap Deal

The Rumour

TOTTENHAM are poised to make it second time lucky in their bid to land Bulgarian winger Martin Petrov.
The Manchester City star, 30, snubbed a £4.7million move from Atletico Madrid to the Londoners two years ago. But he could now figure in a possible player-plus-cash swap for David Bentley.

The Analysis

David Bentley’s time at White Hart Lane has been a troubled one. There was the undisputed high point of the entire season as Spurs came back from the dead to draw 4-4 with arch rivals Arsenal when of course the former Gunner scored a wonder goal but unfortunately Harry Redknapp’s rejuvenation of the club has been done pretty much without the England man’s help as he has seen his first team chances fade to zero. The 24 year old attacking midfielder and sometime wide man hasn’t started a Premier League game since late January and seems certain to leave the club.

Martin Petrov started his Eastlands career with a bang and was one of the star performers under Sven’s regime but injury has severely hampered his progress at Man City but he showed in his 20 minute cameo in the Manchester derby last month that he is still capable of beating a man for pace and being an impact player.

If you believe the media baloney then you will no doubt be aware of the left sided problem the club has supposedly had for a number of years and whilst it’s true the club lacks genuine width and ability out wide, Luka Modric has fitted in very well on the left side of midfield in recent months but Petrov would give them something extra so could well be worth trying to secure.

The Likelihood

Petrov to Spurs: The Bulgarian was a big target for Juande Ramos and Martin Jol so perhaps Harry will succeed where his predecessors failed?
