Spurs & Arsenal in transfer face-off

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are tracking Arsenal target Lukas Podolski, as they cannot come to an agreement over the permanent transfer of Emmanuel Adebayor.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was keen to secure the services of the Togo striker, but Manchester City's asking price has led to a possible transfer showdown with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

The Metro reports that the White Hart Line side have set their sights on Germany international Podolski to replace Adebayor when his season long loan comes to an end.

This comes after Arsenal were linked with a possible move for the former Bayern Munich striker.

Arsene Wenger was reportedly keen to bring ‘Poldi’ to the Emirates Stadium in an attempt to relieve the goal scoring pressure on captain Robin van Persie.

Spurs have their own striking problems, as Adebayor’s arrival has coincided with them making an impressive start to the season and there has been no credible replacement for the Manchester City striker.

With the seemingly likely departure of Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermain Defoe unable to effectively lead the line in the past, Redknapp could be faced with a dearth of forward options should the Togo international return to his parent club.

The Cologne striker has made a lightning start to his Bundesliga season, already finding the net nine times in 11 games.
