Whereas it’s looking like the transfer of Robbie Keane is drawing ever closer, the question as to which of our strikers will join him remains unanswered. Yesterday, Les Ferdinand was widely reported as having intimated that Spurs didn’t need a new centre foward and that the men in place were more than capable of scoring the goals needed to put us back in Champions League contention.
Following on from Ferdinand’s comments and reacting to news of renewed interest from Sunderland, Harry Redknapp has said today that Peter Crouch at least, is unlikely to be moving anywhere.
When questioned on the subject, the manager said: “I doubt it. Crouchy is a good player. I like him. He is a great lad and I love him as a fella.
“He is not one I’m looking to shift. We are looking to bring a striker in but he is not one of those that we are looking to sell if we can help it.”
So the striking jigsaw is yet to be solved but it looks increasingly likely that Peter Crouch will still be at the Lane next season. The big question remains as to who will join him.
