Transfer rumours can seem unlikely for different reasons and that’s perfectly highlighted today by two striker links for next month. It’s questionable whether Spurs will even enter the market for a new striker – some would argue that they don’t need one – but that won’t stop the gossip.
The first name is a familiar one – Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge is firmly out of favour at Chelsea and despite an inconsistent record the centre forward seems to be attracting a fair amount of attention. Stories today suggest that Sturridge has ‘snubbed’ Spurs in favour for a move to Liverpool for whatever reason.
With a strike ratio of around one in five – admittedly with several appearances from the bench – few Spurs fans are likely to be upset by the news.
The other name belongs to a man that practically every supporter would like to see in a Lilywhite shirt but is there a chance that David Villa would really come to the Lane? The striker may have struggled since returning from injury and he may be on offer for a knock down fee but there’s also the question of wages.
David Villa to Spurs might be the biggest deal since Klinsmann while Sturridge to the Lane might fall somewhere between Rasiak and Saha. At this stage, neither seems all that likely.
