Tottenham clinched that all important 4th spot (and they might even finish 3rd) on Wednesday night and already some big names are being linked with summer moves to White Hart Lane.
Harry Redknapp is likely to have some cash to splash when the transfer window opens on July the 1st and if you believe what you read in the papers, he already has a few players in mind.
Craig Bellamy, a player whom Redknapp nearly signed last season, is one name being linked with a move to Tottenham. The 30-year old has had a magnificent season for Manchester City but there is talk that his relationship with manager Roberto Mancini is frayed beyond repair.
Chelsea’s Joe Cole is also understood to be attracting interest from Tottenham with Spurs apparently prepared to offer Cole the £120,000 a week contract the midfielder has demanded at Stamford Bridge. Cole, 28, has had a frustrating season at Chelsea and many, including myself, think he will be on his way out of the club but whether or not it is in fact Tottenham he joins is the question. Cole has worked with Redknapp in the past during their time at West Ham and maybe now that Tottenham have qualified for the Champions League, the England international may be lured back into Harry’s arms.
A former Tottenham player, Michal Carrick is another name being linked with a possible move to the north London club. The Manchester United midfielder left the club back in 2006 and has since gone on to win three Premier League title at Old Trafford. The 28-year old has come in for some criticism from the United faithful this season and it comes as no surprise to me to see his name linked with a move away from the club.
Personally, I could see the Craig Bellamy and Joe Cole deals possibly happening. However, I don’t see why Redknapp would move for Carrick considering the fact he has several better and younger midfield players already at the club. The next few months are bound to be intriguing for all you Spurs fans and we want to know what you to say on these and all the other rumours surrounding the club.
