Published Add your comment

Tottenham are set to make a move for Villarreal forward Giuseppe Rossi for a fee of £16.5million, according to the Independant.

Manager Harry Redknapp is keen to strengthen his strikeforce with the impending departure of Robbie Keane and Rossi has been identified as a key target.

Rossi's contract expires in the summer of 2012 and he has been attracting attention from Europe's major countries. It had previously been rumoured that Manchester United had a buy-back option for the striker, but Sir Alex Ferguson has ruled out bringing anyone in during this transfer window.

The Italian striker spend a few years in England from 2004 to 2007 when he was under contract at Manchester United. However, after few first team opportunities, Rossi had loan moves at both Newcastle and Parma.

In July 2007, Rossi sealed a permanent move to Villarreal for an undisclosed fee and has gone on to scored 42 goals in 109 league appearances.
