With the transfer window set to shut in just under 24 hours, many clubs are tipped to splash the cash before the deadline, with dozens of deals set to go through.
One club who certainly look like they could open the cheque book between now and Tuesday tee time are Tottenham.
Harry Redknapp is desperate to replace Luka Modric who has today been ruled out for two months after breaking his leg during Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Birmingham. Several names have been mentioned over the past few hours, however one name which just keeps popping up is that of Martin Petrov.
The Manchester City winger has done nothing but sit on the bench at Eastlands this season and that is unlikely to change with the vast amount of attacking talent already at the club. It is thought a bid of £5 million would be enough to secure the Bulgarian’s services.
Meanwhile, Spurs are also believed to be in the race to sign Portsmouth keeper David James. The England international was left out of Pompey’s starting line-up for yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester City, fuelling speculation that a move to White Hart Lane could be on the cards.
Redknapp has previously admitted that he would be interested in signing James, 40, however at the moment he was not in the market for a keeper. James would undoubtedly be interested in a move away from Fratton Park, with the club currently having no points to their name this season.
It will be fascinating to see what happens at White Hart Lane over the coming hours. I, for one, can see at least one new face arriving before the deadline tomorrow, however who that will be is anyone’s guess. Stay tuned to Football Corner for all the latest developments on this and more.
