Spurs target sensational move for €15m strike superstar

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are reportedly ready to renew their interest in Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano.

According to, the north London club are resigned to losing out on Luis Suarez to Liverpool and will now turn their attentions to the 30-year-old Brazilian.

Harry Redknapp is said to be keen to add a proven goalscorer to his ranks as Spurs continue to fight for glory on three fronts, and Fabiano would provide Tottenham with plenty of experience.

Having joined Sevilla in 2005, the former Porto hotshot has been one of the most consistent strikers in La Liga and - along with that of Spurs - has attracted the attention of a number of top clubs.

However, prior to the World Cup last summer, the Brazil ace admitted he wasn't interested in a move to Tottenham - explaining it would only represent a sideways step in his career.

"There would be no point in me joining Tottenham, I might as well stay at Sevilla, it's the same thing," he said.

"Sevilla are actually bigger when you look at how much we have been in the European Cup, so there would be no point me moving to a smaller team."

Spurs will reportedly have to fight off interest from Juventus for Fabiano, whose wage demands of £80,000-per-week could prove to be a stumbling block.
