Tottenham Hotspur set transfer sights on Manchester City striker

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a surprise January move for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko.

The Southern Daily Echo claims that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is ready to 'reignite his interest' in the 26-year-old, having failed to land the Bosnian international when Harry Redknapp was in charge of the club.

Back then, Citizens boss Roberto Mancini made a £27 million offer for the Wolfsburg striker, ending any chance of the forward moving to White Hart Lane.

However, things have not gone exactly to plan at the Etihad Stadium, and despite scoring 11 goals in 17 appearances for club and country so far this term, Dzeko has found himself largely on the bench for Manchester City.

The ‘super-sub’ tag does not sit well on the player however, adding weight to speculation over a move away from the club.

Wages are likely to be a major issue for Tottenham Hotspur however, with Dzeko believed to earn in the region of £170,000 a week.

That means Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas could look to bring the player to north London on loan rather than in a permanent deal – similar to the agreement between the two clubs for Emmanuel Adebayor last season.

Tottenham Hotspur have since signed Adebayor on a permanent deal, but a lack of fitness, form and playing time has left the club looking for another striker to bolster the ranks.

And, in what could turn out to be a strange twist, Spurs could again look to raid Manchester City for another striker.
