White Hart Lane boss wants Stamford Bridge hero to make move from West to North London.
Didier Drogba could be set for a move to Tottenham, after Harry Redknapp made his intentions to snag the striker clear, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Redknapp has reportedly been told by Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy that Spurs can challenge for the title next season if they invest money into a striker, central midfielder and central defender. And Chelsea striker Drogba fills Rednapp’s boxes for the perfect addition to the Tottenham squad.
Drogba is currently the second top scorer for Chelsea, behind Nicolas Anelka. This is quite a good feat for the striker, considering he hasn’t been guaranteed a place in the squad since Chelsea completed their £50 million purchase of Fernando Torres in January.

It appears that Carlo Ancelotti may not be so keen to allow Didier Drogba to leave Chelsea as some had assumed when the Blues spent £50m on Fernando Torres as it appears that the Ivory Coast striker has a lot more to offer the West London club at present.
Former Liverpool man Torres has been woeful in front of goal and his arrival has if anything spurred on Drogba to get back towards his best and that has helped Ancelotti’s side push back into title contention. Harry Redknapp may feel however that come the summer the 33 year old may look to move on if he feels that his place will be handed to a younger replacement.
Tottenham’s striking quartet have struggled for goals this term and Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Peter Crouch have all failed to impress the White Hart Lane boss who must be thankful that his midfield is able to weigh in with a fair few goals to help bail his strikers out, with Rafael Van der Vaart being the most effective attacking weapon the club has.
It seems far more likely that if Drogba was to leave Stamford Bridge it would be either to return to France, and maybe to his old Marseille stamping ground, or perhaps to move to the Bernabeu to be reunited with former boss Jose Mourinho.
