Over the course of the weekend, rumours of an approach from Spurs for Costa Rican international Bryan Ruiz continued to gain momentum and when you look at his scoring record, it’s a surprise that English clubs haven’t been linked with the player before.
Ruiz is 26 later this month and currently plays his football at FC Twente in Holland where he averages around a goal every other game. Added to that, he has 9 goals in 26 games for his country.
Speaking to the press the player said: “They have approached my agent, but I have yet to really discuss the interest with him.
“I was told about Spurs’ interest two days ago. Spurs are a great club and I’d be honoured to play alongside Rafael van der Vaart.
“I’d say that the chance that I’ll leave Twente is 50 per cent.”
Spurs fans have waited all summer for a striker so could the club be about to pull off a deal at the last minute and if they do, does Bryan Ruiz have what it takes to solve the scoring issues at the Lane?
