Tottenham are giving serious consideration to a bid for Villareal forward Giuseppe Rossi.
Rossi was not believed to be on Harry Redknapp’s wish list but claims from the player’s agent that his client could be looking for a move away from El Madrigal has seen the Spurs boss has seen the Spurs boss declare an interest. Chelsea’s name was mentioned by the agent in question but with the Blues having other targets in mind, the door is open for Spurs to swoop.
One obstacle is the deal that Rossi’s former club Manchester United have in place whereby they have first option on the player should Villarreal decide to sell. While Sir Alex Ferguson remains an admirer of the 23-year-old it is unlikely that he will take up that option with a wealth of strikers already on United’s books.
Rossi is rated at around £12m which is for a player that boasts a strike rate of a goal every other game in La Liga. (Sportingo)
Harry Redknapp is reportedly very keen to bring in some fresh attacking options as he has apparently begun to lose patience with the strikers he currently has at White Hart Lane and to that end a move for Giuseppe Rossi may be a very sensible one. The 23 year old American born Italian international was of course a former youth team player who never quite made it at Old Trafford.
Rossi has been a huge hit in Spain and now into his fourth season at Villarreal the New Jersey born striker has to date hit 62 goals for the Yellow Submarines but may well be tempted by a move from his over achieving La Liga side.
A move back to the Premier League would surely tempt the pint sized youngster who is natural predator in the box and may well be just what the Tottenham boss is looking for as he attempts to secure another top four finish this term or even a tilt for the title?
