Spurs plot shock Bosnian striker move - reports

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a shock summer move for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

The Bosnian striker endured a difficult opening season in the Barclays Premier League after moving to Eastlands in January for a reported £27 million.

Despite an impressive pre-season and FA Community Shield performance, first team opportunities are likely to be limited following the arrival of Sergio Aguero, and talkSPORT reports that the 25-year-old is now on the Tottenham Hotspur radar.

Harry Redknapp is known to be in the market for a striker and is keen to shuffle his attacking pack at White Hart Lane, and with Robbie Keane admitting a Spurs exit is almost certain this summer, the Spurs boss is set to step-up his pursuit of a player in the position.

With uncertainty surrounding the futures of Roman Pavlyuchenko and Peter Crouch, who has been the subject of a bid from Stoke City today, Tottenham could surprisingly become light in the position with only days until the big Barclays Premier League kick-off.


Spurs host Everton in the capital, although with riots set to continue, there is dooubt over whether the game will be able to take place.

Emmanuel Adabayor has also been linked with the club, but with Real Madrid eager to bring the forward back to the Santiago Bernabeu, Spurs could move for a different City striker this summer.

Hulk, Diego Forlan and Giuseppe Rossi have also been linked, but after failing to lure the later pair away from Spain, Tottenham Hotspur's search may become even more desperate as the transfer window draws towards a close.
