Tottenham are on red alert after it emerged that highly-rated Espanyol goalkeeper Carlos Kameni is seeking a move away in January, and would consider an offer from "any English club" according to skysports.com.

The 27-year-old Cameroon international has fallen down the pecking order at Espanyol, and having failed to start a single La Liga game this season, the former Le Harve stopper wants out.

Espanyol coach Mauricio Pochettino, has made it clear that he will choose his players on merit, regardless of their reputation, meaning Kameni, who has featured over 200 times for the Catalan club is not guaranteed a starting spot.

"I have three goalkeepers and I will choose the best from a sporting perspective," he stated.


 

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is in the market for a long-term replacement for Brad Friedel, despite the 40-year-old only moving to White Hart Lane in the summer - it is widely accepted that the American was only signed as a short-term fix to the unpredictable Heurelho Gomes.

With 60 international caps to his name, the African ace would bring a wealth of experience to north London, but the fact that the player remains under contract until 2013 means that Tottenham will need to pay a substancial fee to make a move possible, though the player's current predicament means a transfer remains a viable option.
