Costa Rican winger Bryan Ruiz has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in obtaining his goal scoring knack for next season, and admits that he is considering a move away from FC Twente.
The 25-year-old has an impeccable record in the Eredivisie having scored 33 times in 61 games for Twente, who won the KNVB Cup last year - the Dutch equivalent of the FA Cup.
The confident Costa Rican, who was linked to Liverpool and Everton last year, also played under Steve McClaren as the Dutch side won the Eredivisie for the first time in the 2009/2010 season.
Redknapp is said to be keen to acquire Ruiz's ability and winning experience to galvanise the White Hart Lane club as they attempt to break into the top four this coming season.
Spurs will apparently have to fork out around £13.75 million to break the release clause in the winger's contract.
Ruiz was happy to be linked to the club, and added that a move was quite possible. He said: "They have approached my agent. I was told about Tottenham Hotspur's interest two days ago.
"Spurs are a great club. I'd say that the chance that I'll leave Twente is 50 per cent."
