With just over a week to go before the transfer window closes, the rumour mill is in full swing with several stories emerging this morning.
Most of them feature strikers and many are just rehashes of stories that have already appeared this month. One of those repeated stories today features Son Heung-Min (pictured) – the Hamburg winger / striker who has put several clubs on alert after stating that he was unlikely to renew his contract.
Palermo’s attacking midfielder Josep Ilicic is back again, presumably as Spurs continue to be frustrated in their efforts to sign Lewis Holtby this month. Slovenian Ilicic looks a real prospect but with Holtby on his way at some point, is he really needed?
However, one of the new names is a pretty exciting one – Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony. The forward, who presumably will have been called the ‘New Drogba’ at some stage has an impressive 30 goals in 51 league games in Holland and has notched 22 in his last 25.
At the moment, the suggestion of Bony joining Spurs looks to be no more than a couple of isolated stories but those are the sort of stats that are bound to get other clubs interested.
But then again there’s Gary Hooper… Where would you be looking?
