Dutch starlet attracts Liverpool and Spurs attention

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are set to join Liverpool in the race for Dutch youngster Ricky van Wolfswinkel, according to reports. suggests that Harry Redknapp is hoping to pip Liverpool counterpart Roy Hodgson to the signature of the 21-year-old.

Liverpool had been heavily linked with the FC Utrecht striker during the summer transfer window but an offer from the Anfield club never materialised.

It had been claimed that Liverpool were been preparing an £8 million bid for the high-rated Dutchman who has recently broken into the Holland national squad.

Van Wolfswinkel could come back to haunt Liverpool after they failed to sign him when they meet Utrecht in the Europa League later this month.

Celtic know only too well what it's like to be face the tricky forward in his pomp, after he scored a hat-trick to dump them out of the competition in August.

A repeat performance against the Merseysiders could see him secure a January move to Anfield.

However, Tottenham could rely on the influence of Rafael van der Vaart - a senior member of the Holland squad - to lure van Wolfswinkel to White Hart Lane.
