Spurs want Brazilian star

Published Add your comment

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has revealed he is interested in bringing Brazil striker Luis Fabiano to White Hart Lane.

Fabiano was the focal point of Brazil's attacking play at the World Cup - scoring three goals - and has been prolific for Spanish side Sevilla since joining them from FC Porto in 2005.

Redknapp is keen to add more quality to his squad before they embark on their maiden Champions League campaign, and the 63-year-old believes Fabiano fits the bill.

"He's a fabulous player and would be a brilliant addition to any team," Redknapp told Soccernet.

"It was put to us that he might be available, but we've not made contact with his club Sevilla and, to be perfectly honest, I haven't sat down to discuss any transfer targets with our chairman Daniel Levy, apart from trying to do a deal with Joe Cole.

"I am not unhappy with the squad I have, but of course if a special player came along I would look at it, and Fabiano is a special player all right.

"For sure, he is a class act, but I don't know what he earns. He might be on mega money, so it might prove to be impossible for us."
