With no further news on Leandro, Tottenham were linked with two further strikers over the weekend in Roma’s Mirko Vucinic and Monaco’s Park Chu-Young.
The Vucinic connection has appeared briefly on previous occasions and it’s thought that the 27 year old could be available for around £12m. As soon as the reports appeared however, further stories came through suggesting that the striker would be on his way to Juventus.
Park Chu-Young is 25 and has just won his 50th cap for South Korea. He has played in France for the last three seasons and suggestions are that he could be for sale in a more favourable price bracket – around the £6m mark.
While much is made of Vucinic and his 11 goals in 21 internationals, he averages around a goal every three games in Serie A, while Park’s overall record is slightly worse. While we may not have heard the last of these rumours, Spurs fans may hope that Harry finds someone a little more potent.
