Hamburg have vowed to do everything possible to re-sign Rafael van der Vaart from Tottenham before Friday.
The chairman of the Bundlesliga outfit, Carl-Edgar Jarchow admits time is now against him and is still yet to persuade Spurs to part with the Dutchman.
The capture of Moussa Dembele could go some wait to easing the pain of Van der Vaart’s possible departure from White Hart Lane with just 48 hours to run of the summer transfer widow.
“There is not a lot of time – it is really up to Tottenham Hotspur,” he told Deutsche Presse-Agentur.
“If we have a chance to sign him, we will do everything we can to make that happen.”
Personally, I hope that VDV remains a Spurs player, we need his quality if we are to break into the top four once again.
