Harry Redknapp is certainly accustomed to pulling off a transfer bargain or two, and this summer is likely to be no different, as the Tottenham boss looks for a striker capable of firing his side back into the Champions League.
It wouldn't quite be summer without the 64-year-old thrashing out a last minute deal for a high-calibre player, as was demonstrated when Redknapp managed to seal the deadline day signing of Rafael Van der Vaart last August.
Much like this time last year, the acquisition of a new forward is high on the agenda for Redknapp, with Spurs linked with more than their fair share of goalscorers in recent weeks.
Villareal's Giuseppe Rossi has taken the fancy of Redknapp, although he admits Spurs may be priced out of a move for the Italian once again, having failed in an attempt to sign him in January.
Another striker who was on the Spurs radar during the winter transfer window was Emmanuel Adebayor, who ultimately left Manchester City for a loan spell with Real Madrid.
Redknapp does, however, still harbour ambitions of bringing the former Arsenal hotshot to White Hart Lane, but admits the decision is out of his hands.
"The chairman, Daniel Levy, has been speaking about it, I am not sure if it will happen," he said. "He is a name that has certainly been mentioned, certainly.
"I spoke to the chairman about loaning the player and if we could work out a deal for him, I would like to bring him to the club."
