Redknapp sets Spurs sights on African striker – reports

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp is reportedly ready to target West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie.

The Nigerian international forward made an impressive start to life in England last season, notching 15 Barclays Premier League goals in his debut season.

The Daily Mirror now claims Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp is considering a move for the player, if Peter Crouch leaves White Hart Lane in the transfer window.

Stoke City have been heavily linked with a move for the player, and Potters chairman Peter Coates confirmed last week that an offer had been made for both Crouch and midfielder Wilson Palacios.

Redknapp is keen to shuffle the Spurs attacking pack in north London, with the club last night accepting an offer from LA Galaxy for Irish international striker Robbie Keane.


Giuseppe Rossi, Diego Forlan and Pablo Osvaldo have all been linked with moves to Tottenham Hotspur during the transfer window, but after failing to secure any of the signature's from La Liga, Redknapp appears to have set his sights closer to home.

Spurs may have also sensed an opportunity to pounce after reports on SkySports claimed Odemwingie's contract talks have stalled at The Hawthorns. Wigan and Newcastle are also thought to be keen on the player.
