Some reports today are linking Spurs with a summer move for Swedish international and PSV Eindhoven striker Ola Toivonen who has been fairly prolific in Holland, despite his current employers’ previous attempts to offload him.
It is said that PSV tried to negotiate a sale for Toivonen to either Liverpool, Sunderland or West Brom last year and the player has hinted that he may leave this time around.
‘If PSV want to earn some money by selling me, then now is the time to sell me,’ he said.
‘If something interesting comes along, I will look into it.’
Toivonen hasn’t had a stellar career at international level with 4 goals in 22 games for Sweden but he is in the squad for Euro 2012 and is expected to play a part.
At club level however he is more prolific and at PSV is just about averaging a goal every other game. Reports suggest that a £7m fee is involved and at that price, the striker could be a decent back up option.
