Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has suffered repeated setbacks in his pursuit of a new striker.
Atletico Madrid rejected Spurs’ offer for Sergio Aguero in January – believed to have been around £38m – and now the Argentina international has indicated his desire to stay at Estadio Vicente Calderon.
The White Hart Lane outfit had a similar setback from Villarreal for Giuseppe Rossi, and have been linked with a plethora of forward players this season.
The reason being of course, that Tottenham strikers have consistently misfired this season.
Roman Pavlyuchenko has seven Premier League goals, Peter Crouch has two, and Jermain Defoe has two.
The Germany striker has 18 goals so far this season in the Bundesliga – more than the Spurs forward line’s total – and has also managed an impressive 8 UEFA Champions League goals.
Redknapp believes that his club’s failure to match his form in Europe could see him look to leave the Allianz Arena, and he will offer him the exciting journey currently underway at White Hart Lane as an ambitious adventure to be a part of.
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy hopes £30m will secure Gomez’s signature.
Having seen his side draw a blank against a West Ham side who are not exactly famous for their defensive abilities Harry Redknapp may well feel even more ready to splash the cash to sign this in form German international.
Bayern Munich are struggling this term to relive their successes of last term when Louis Van Gaal guided the Bavarian side to a domestic double and a Champions League Final. This season they find themselves way behind leaders Borussia Dortmund and could possibly miss out on a Champions League spot for next season.
This has led to the club’s Dutch boss to announce his decision to quit at the end of the season and the uncertainty that will undoubtedly follow may help Tottenham to land Gomez. The lanky former Stuttgart man has netted an incredible 30 goals in 38 games this season in all competitions and would be a very useful signing if the White Hart Lane side can pull it off.
Gomez’s physical attributes may well lend themselves nicely to the Premier League and it will take a massive bid to land the prolific marksman and that fee may well be funded by the sale of the likes of Roman Pavlyuchenko, Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch, all of whom have failed to inspire much confidence this season.
