Tottenham Hotspur Plot Move For Former Arsenal Captain

Posted by

Spurs consider move for Kolo Toure, who wore the captain’s armband on numerous occasions during a seven-and-a-half-year stay at Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur are once again poised to test their loyal fans by attempting to land another former Arsenal player, according to Football Direct News.

Ex-Gunners Rohan Rickets, William Gallas and Emmanuel Adebayor have all featured for Spurs over the past decade, and the White Hart Lane club could soon add Kolo Toure to that list.

Toure, who left the Emirates Stadium after seven and a half years on the red side of North London in July 2009,  joined Liverpool from Manchester City on free transfer last summer.

He made a bright start at Anfield, but has since become a bit-part player following the return to form of Martin Skrtel.

Toure, 33, has just over 12 months remaining on his current contract and could be allowed to leave the Reds for a large six-figure fee.

Tottenham’s defence, which has shipped 13 goals in their last six games in all competitions, is likely to be at the forefront of the club’s transfer strategy this summer.

Jan Vertonghen could well be on his way out of White Hart Lane, while the long-term fitness of Younes Kaboul remains a big concern.

Football Direct News claims that Tottenham view Toure as good value for money and as an ideal candidate to bolster their beleaguered backline.

Toure has featured in 24 first-team games for Liverpool. The Reds have kept just six clean sheets in those matches.
