Spurs aren’t big enough to land transfer target claims former midfielder

Jamie O’Hara has voiced his doubts on whether Tottenham Hotspur would be able to complete a deal for Edinson Cavani.

The Champions League finalists have found themselves short of an out and out forward after Harry Kane suffered a serious hamstring injury during the latter stages of the 1-0 defeat at Southampton on New Year’s Day.

Kane underwent surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring which is expected to keep him out of a return to training until April (Spurs official).

Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho has already admitted that he would like to bring in another striker during the current transfer window (Daily Mail).

Cavani is out of contract with the French giants at the end of the season and has been linked with an exit.

The 33-year-old has been linked with a potential move to both Tottenham and Manchester United (The Guardian).

O’Hara believes that the Uruguayan could snub a move to North London after fearing that he will see the Champions League finalists as not a big enough club for him.

“Tottenham need a striker,” O’Hara said during his co-host appearance on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast on talkSPORT (20 January, 9:00am).

“Personally, I don’t think he’d go there. I don’t think they are big enough for him.”


Cavani would be an ideal signing for Spurs, a player who is proven at the highest level and can hit the ground running in the Premier League. However, the reality is that his wages in Paris are likely to be well beyond what Levy is likely to want to offer.
