Real Madrid striker Raul is being linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

According to a report in the News of the World, the 32-year-old has become a target for Harry Redknapp as Spurs prepare for next season’s Champions League.

Spurs are said to have already opened talks with Raul’s agent in the hope that the Spanish giants will release him on a free transfer.  One potential stumbling block could be his £5million-a-year pay packet.

“Raul has always been interested in the Premier League,” a source close to the player told the News of the World.

“He has spoken with friends like Fernando Morientes and Michel Salgado, who know England, and they have encouraged him to make the move.”
