After Martin Jol’s appointment as Fuham manager, it didn’t take the rumour mills long to start a transfer story between the two clubs. Was it just lazy journalism or was there really an enquiry and maybe even a £10m bid for Moussa Dembele?
While Spurs’ search for a striker continues, suggestions have come about that an initial bid failed, but that Tottenham may return with an improved deal that sees Robbie Keane go the other way.
The 23 year old Belgian international doesn’t have a prolific record to date, but his performances against Spurs have impressed. It’s doubtful however if he is the ’20 goals plus’ striker that we need. While sales to Fulham have been brisk in the past, no previous interest has been shown in Robbie Keane so while these rumours are gaining momentum, do they have any real substance?
Most Spurs fans will be delighted to see Martin Jol back in the Premiership, but the suggestion that he will be jumping at the chance to do business with Daniel Levy is an odd one.
