Harry Redknapp has admitted that he is interested in bringing Craig Bellamy to White Hart Lane.
The Tottenham boss is looking to bolster his attacking options as Spurs get set for their first ever season in the Champions League.
Roberto Mancini is reportedly set to leave Bellamy out of City's 25-man squad, hence the Wales striker is desperate for a move away from Eastlands.
Spurs will have to do battle with Fulham for the 31-year-old after the west Londoners' manager Mark Hughes today revealed that is weighing-up a bid for the forward.
But Redknapp is pessimistic about his chances of winning the race for the ex-Newcastle man's signature.
"We were interested in Bellamy but it doesn’t seem that one is going to happen," he told talkSPORT.
"I've always liked Bellamy. He’d do a lot for us. He was outstanding for Man City but he seems to be out of their plans and someone’s going to pick up a really good player."
The 63-year-old former West Ham boss also believes that - should Spurs sign their top three transfer targets - they would win the league this season.
He added: "If I get the three players I’ve got on my list we’ll win the Premier League. But the chances of getting them are quite slim."
