Spurs battle Inter Milan for La Liga hitman

Tottenham Hotspur face a transfer fight with Inter Milan in the race to sign Alvaro Negredo, according to reports.

TalkSPORT claims the Spanish striker would be ‘an ideal candidate’ for Spurs this summer, as Andre Villas-Boas looks to boost his attacking options at the club.

However, the radio station reports that Inter sporting director Marco Branca is also an admirer of the 27-year-old, and wants to bring him to the San Siro from Sevilla.

"He is a great player and one I know very well. But now is not the time to do crazy things,” he told Spanish paper Diario de Sevilla.

"It is one thing for us to be interested in a player and quite another for us to be able to afford his contract."

Leandro Damiao and Christian Benteke have also been linked with moves to White Hart Lane, with a lack of firepower impacting Tottenham Hotspur’s top four credentials this season.

Indeed, Jermain Defoe has struggled with injury for large spells this term, whilst Emmanuel Adebayor failed to find form for Spurs in the early stages of the campaign.

That said, Gareth Bale has inspired AVB’s side to a possible Champions League finish, which could prove pivotal in the transfer market at the end of the season.

Negredo would add an additional attacking option to the Tottenham side, but is unlikely to come cheap after another impressive season in La Liga.
