Considering the stories that have emerged in the last 24 hours it seems unlikely that Spurs are in advanced talks with any transfer targets. However, the gossip continues and some Newcastle websites even contain the rumour that Spurs have made a concrete offer for Tim Krul.
Krul has been mentioned on here before, as have many other goalkeepers, as a long term replacement for Brad Friedel. Given the Dutchman’s undoubted qualities however, it’s unlikely that he’d be content of a place on the bench while Brad continues for another season.
The reports go on to suggest that Tottenham have offered £10m for the Netherlands international and while some Newcastle fans’ valuation of £25m may seem a little extreme, if that bid were true it could still fall a long way short for a player who is still only 24 years of age.
Tim Krul could be a great long term fit for Tottenham but it seems an unlikely deal at this stage for any number of reasons.
