Tottenham plotting move to sign Samuel Eto'o this summer

Tottenham will offer Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o the chance to move to White Hart Lane this summer.

This is according to reports cited by The Metro, which claim that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy - who has come in for a certain amount of criticism from fans following an eventful 2013/14 campaign - is willing to offer the veteran Cameroonian a two-year deal to move to North London.

Eto'o joined Chelsea from Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala prior to the close of the 2013 summer transfer window on a one-year contract reportedly worth £7 million.

That aforementioned deal is due to run out shortly, with little discussion appearing to surround the possibility of the former Barcelona and Inter Milan star extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Indeed the chances of Eto'o remaining a Chelsea player for the 2014/15 season have to be considered very remote, particularly given that the relationship between Eto'o and manager Jose Mourinho appears to have become somewhat strained in recent times.

Earlier today, reports surfaced that appeared to show Eto'o referring to Mourinho as a 'puppet' - further indication that the 33-year-old was less than impressed by comments made about his age earlier this year.

With Roberto Soldado having abjectly failed to live up to his rather large price tag during a difficult first season at Tottenham and Emmanuel Adebayor's form still proving somewhat inconsistent, the club - who are currently without a permanent manager following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood last week - would perhaps be wise to seek the addition of a new forward in the near future.

Whether Eto'o would prove a popular choice among Tottenham fans is certainly questionable, although there is no questioning his previous pedigree.

Eto'o made 36 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea last season, netting a total of 14 goals.
