When rumours start over the departure of one player it gives the press some column inches to fill over a potential replacement. Such is the case with Spurs and Rafael van der Vaart and despite some more positive comments from the Dutchman over his Tottenham future, the papers are already lining up a new arrival to take his slot.
Suggestions are that Spurs are looking at bids for either Milos Krasic or Bologna’s Gaston Ramirez. We’ve seen Serbian Krasic mentioned a lot in the media and he could well be a good fit for the club with VDV in the side too.
Ramirez is a new name however and at just 21, looks more like one for the future. He does have 9 caps for Uruguay at present however but with a fee at £14m being suggested when van der Vaart may fetch only £12m – this one looks like another non-starter.
