Spurs may have missed out on a move for Ashley Young in recent years, but could they look to Aston Villa again in an attempt to persuade Gabriel Agbonlahor to move to North London?
Reports today are suggesting that Harry Redknapp could be about to prepare a £20m bid in time for the January transfer window as he attempts to strengthen his striking options for the rest of the campaign.
Despite losing several key players over the summer, including Young and Stewart Downing, Villa have made a decent start and Agbonlahor has played his part in that with four goals in nine games.
Overall, the player’s scoring record comes it at just better than one goal in every four games but he has played for much of his career as a winger and that versatility is another reason why other clubs are taking notice.
Villa will be reluctant to sell but £20m may persuade them and there are possibilities for trade the other way including Roman Pavlyuchenko and Jermaine Jenas who is currently on loan at the club.
As for the player, he has so far won just three caps for England since making his debut in 2008 and a move higher up the league could see him break through and cement a place in the national side.
