Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he won’t be making a move in January for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Reports in recent weeks have linked the Frenchman with a move to White Hart Lane, but Redknapp has ruled that out.
‘There’s nothing in that,’ he said. ‘He’s a good player, I like him, he looks a real talent. But certainly we haven’t made any enquires at all for him. There’s definitely nothing going on there at the moment.’ (Daily Mail)
Though he resents the term ‘wheeler-dealer’, Harry Redknapp is a canny one in the transfer market.
There’s “nothing going on there at the moment” with Benzema, but he is certainly on the Spurs manager’s radar.
In all seriousness too, Karim Benzema would be a magnificent addition to the White Hart Lane attack.
Not only is he able to lead the line on his own, his excellent link up play would make him a decent prospective partner for Jermain Defoe.
Should the France striker sign though, it would almost certainly seal the end of two of Peter Crouch, Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko’s White Hart Lane careers.
