Palermo have accepted a joint £28million bid from tottenham for Simon Kjaer and Edinson Cavani.

A vast number of clubs have been linked with both players, with Palermo willing to listen to offers for the want-away duo, but Spurs appear to have stolen a march on their transfer rivals.

Both Manchester City and United have been linked with Kjaer, whilst Cavani has recently stated his desire to join Inter Milan.

Palermo chairman, Maurizio Zamperini has claimed Spurs have put down a bit of £28m for the pair and that the offer was too good to refuse.

“Tottenham have bid 35m Euros, an offer we cannot refuse, seeing as the two players have both said they want to leave.

“We will reinvest the money for these players. The midfield is my biggest concern, whereas in defence and attack we are fairly covered.”

The two have been targeted for a while by Harry Redknapp as he looks to bolster his squad for next season’s Champions League.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. no idea what these two are like, have seena bit of cavani but not enough to make judgement – does anyone have more info on them? No point describing their performances in WC, as we all know this isn't the ebst way to judge talent!

  2. Don't know much about Kjaer,but Cavani looks good for Paraquay in the WC. With Sendros & hopefully a few more good signings,next season can be Spurs season.

    • You obviously follow football closely! Cavani plays for Uruguay so you must be thinking of some other Paraguayan and who is Sendros? Philipe Senderos has just signed for Fulham. Sandro has signed for Spurs albeit noone knows nothing about him.

  3. hahaha! and i don't think we want sendero either, sandro would do for me.

    not being funny but if we keep 'arry, sign cole, kjaer and cavani i'd say that was an extremely succesful summer. flog keane and pav and bring back gudjohnsen. we'd have the most varied attack in the prem. 4 completely different options. Then cole to help fill in the centre and left wing, kjaer to back up king and co. the only position i'd think about is RB – is Charlie cutting it? any fast wingers make him look average, naughton going to come through?

  4. Micah Richards would make the summer a perfect one in terms of players brought in… add him to the list of players 'DALE' above mentioned and well… I'd be the happiest man about lol.

  5. Bring in Mesut Ozil (complete attacking midfielder who scores goals), Podolski (back in form and if Koln can pay his wages so can we) and Michel Bastos (reminds me of Evra the way he plays and sell BAE) … That's all I ask for, they dont come cheap but those are the type of players we want now that we are in the champions league
