Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will make signing a high-profile striker his priority in the summer transfer market but it will not be Atletico Madrid’s Uruguayan forward Diego Forlan.
Redknapp has admitted that Spurs could have previously signed Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi for Â£18million, only to find his price had inflated to Â£35million when Spurs went on a somewhat desperate striker hunt on the final few days of the January transfer window.
â€œIâ€™d like to get another front man, if I can,â€ he said.
â€œTheyâ€™re difficult to find. We went for [Giuseppe] Rossi last year and he was suddenly Â£35million. We could have had him before for Â£18million. But we didnâ€™t do it.â€
