Tottenham goalkeeper Cesar Sanchez would welcome compatriot Dani Guiza with open arms if speculation linking the Spain international to White Hart Lane came to fruition.
Guiza, who moved to Turkish side Fenerbahce this summer after finishing as the leading scorer in the Primera Liga last season, is one of the names being put forward as a possible signing for new Spurs boss Harry Redknapp when the transfer window opens.
"It's clear that Guiza is a great player who would strengthen the team. I would be delighted if a player of his class arrived," said Cesar, who moved to England this summer.
"As well as being very good he is also Spanish, and this is good for us and for Spanish football."
Cesar has had to look on from the bench this season with Heurelho Gomes between the posts for Spurs' dismal start.
The 37-year-old admits he felt sympathy for compatriot Juande Ramos, who was sacked last Saturday night with the team languishing at the foot of the Premier League having picked up just two points from their opening eight games.
"It's normal when results aren't going your way," the veteran stopper told Marca.
"It's a shame for me because he's Spanish and a good person, but at the end of the day you need to continue working because the league continues.
"Juande did a good job here and he will come good in the future. Now there are new ideas and we have to adapt to them to get the best results possible."
