The Guardian has today reported that Spurs are interested in signing Miroslav Klose this summer on a free transfer.

Before you run off to check that calendar, no it’s not 2010. Klose is 36-years old, yet he’s still doing the business on the pitch and is being chased by a number of clubs.

Klose retired from international football this summer having become the World Cup’s record goalscorer but he’s continued to impress at club level. The German has scored 13 goals this season for Lazio in 32 appearances.

Tottenham may well need to recruit two strikers this summer and one of those spots would ideally go to a veteran player who is willing to play second fiddle to Harry Kane, ready to come off the bench and start in occasional games.

If they could land a player like Klose, he could provide experienced cover next season and will be a great mentor for Kane.

So would you welcome Klose at White Hart Lane, or has that ship sailed long ago?



  1. at 36 I can’t see him wanting to or be able to do double training sessions the mopo way. would he want to play the high pressing game? be a bench warmer? but if the answer to those questions is yes then why not. levy loves a cheap deal and to have a player with his experience could only help the younger element of our squad. when and if we can get rid of sold-a-dodo and Togo’s greatest wage thief then he’s presence would give value on many different levels. they say you can’t buy experience, why bother if you can get it on a free.
