Spurs' €30m superstar striker target wants summer move

Tottenham Hotspur striker target Luis Fabiano has revealed he is ready to leave Sevilla.

The Brazilian hitman has been heavily linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League in the past, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp thought to be one of the keenest to bring the player to England.

Spanish newspaper AS reported that the player has a minimum fee release clause of €30 million in his contract a year ago, but the 30-year-old's admission that he would like to leave Los Rojiblancos means that figure could come down.

"Now we are in the middle of the season and perhaps it is not the best moment to speak, but it is clear that my cycle with Sevilla has ended," Fabiano told Brazilian website Globoesporte.

"I have won many titles and have also played in the Champions League. (I've experienced) excellent things during the last few years but things in football don't always last."

Tottenham Hotspur aren't the only club interested in the player's services, with Corinthians, Santos and Inter Porto Alegre all thought to be interested, according to the player. Blackburn Rovers also reportedly had a bid turned down in January.

The striker's goalscoring record is outstanding for both club and country, with over 100 goals in five seasons for the La Liga outfit and 28 goals for Brazil in 43 caps.

Redknapp was first linked with a move for the player last summer, and again in 2010 as the White Hart Lane chief looked to strengthen his Spurs strike force ahead of the Champions League.


Whilst Tottenham Hotspur have scored a hatful in the competition, Redknapp is still thought to be keen on bringing the player to north London should the opportunity arise.

It's clear that competition will be tough for Fabiano, who will need to be persuaded that England should be his next destination. However, his ability and record is keeping top clubs interested and Spurs will hope to add the player to their ranks.
