Tottenham Plan Surprise Bid for Chelsea Striker

White Hart Lane boss keen on Stamford Bridge youngster.

Harry Redknapp is interested in signing young Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge and the White Hart Lane boss appears confident he could lure the England Under 21 international with the promise of regular first team football that the Blues seem unwilling to hand the former Man City youngster.

Birmingham born Sturridge arrived at Stamford Bridge in July 2009 but has been unable to convince Carlo Ancelotti of his worth and spent the best part of a year and a half on the Chelsea bench and has thus far made just two Premier League starts for the West London side before he was sent out on loan to Bolton.

The speedy striker has been an instant success whilst at the Trotters, notching up six goals from seven starts and Owen Coyle appears keen on making the temporary move to the Reebok Stadium a permanent one when the season ends, not least because it appears that Swedish international Johan Elmander will be looking to leave the club on a free transfer when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

Sturridge had enough of a struggle to procure first team football at Chelsea when it was merely top internationals Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka and Salomon Kalou ahead of him in the pecking order, however the £50m January signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool makes things next to impossible and unless Ancelotti plans on cutting a player or two from his squad’s striking options then a move away from the Premier League title holders may well appeal to the 21 year old.

Tottenham boss Redknapp has made it clear he intends on bringing in fresh attacking options for next season with one or two of his current quartet of Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko being likely to be sold when the season comes to an end.
