Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he could be set to sign Croatia goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa.
Spartak Moscow star Pletikosa was reportedly close to joining Spurs last summer before suffering a knee injury. Capped 80 times for his country, the 31-year-old would provide competition for Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini at White Hart Lane.
"I might be taking another goalkeeper from Croatia: Pletikosa," Redknapp told croatiansoccerreport.com.
"[There is] every chance I might be getting him so that's good."
Tottenham already have three Croatian players in Luka Modric, Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar.
Redknapp added: "I would say the best players I ever managed in my life have been Croatian boys.
"They're fantastic boys. I have had Igor Stimac, Slaven Bilic, Davor Suker. Robert Prosinecki was a genius. Fantastic footballers and all great guys."
Redknapp is also reportedly battling Liverpool and Arsenal for free agent Joe Cole, while there has been talk of a cut-price move for Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy.
