Tottenham lead race to sign Berbatov

Published Add your comment

Tottenham are the favourites to land Dimitar Berbatov in the summer, according to reports.

The Bulgarian striker is reportedly unhappy at Craven Cottage, with his agent saying last week that he was seeking a January move away from west London.

Now the Express are reporting that Tottenham lead the race for his signature, with bookmakers slashing their odds on the 32-year-old returning to White Hart Lane.

Arsenal and West Ham are also said to be in the running for his signature.

According to the paper, SkyBet have made Spurs 7/2 to re-sign Berbatov, with north London rivals Arsenal second favourites at 14/1.

Spurs appear short in the striker department at the moment, with only misfiring summer signing Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe available to lead the line for Spurs.

Togolese forward Emmanuel Adebayor has made just one appearance in the Premier League all season having been effectively frozen out by boss Andre Villas-Boas.

Berbatov joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal worth around £10 million in 2006, before departing to join Manchester United in 2008.

The languid striker made 63 appearances for Spurs during his time in north London, scoring 27 times.
