The same old players are being linked with a summer move to White Hart Lane, but while the likes of Rossi, Forlan and Huntelaar get a regular mention, some interesting new names are attracting some stories.
Both Everton and Tottenham are believed to be watching Gervinho, Lille’s Ivory Coast international. Gervinho is 24 later this month and has been at Lille for two seasons, having started his career in Belgium with Beveren. He has nineteen caps for his country.
Gervinho is an interesting character – having started his career as a striker, he seems to be scoring more goals since Lille put him on the wing. This season he seems to have fallen out of favour, although he is still scoring after coming off the bench.
Harry Redknapp may like the player’s versatility and could convert him back to his striking role while keeping the option to play him on the wing. Frustrated with his lack of opportunity in France, the player himself is rumoured to be looking for an English club.
