Tottenham Hotspur are likey to make a move for Sully Muntari or Martin Petrov, according to former player Graham Roberts.

Following Luka Modric’s broken leg, which is likely to keep the Croatian sidelined for at least six weeks, Harry Redknapp is being tipped to bring in a replacement to bolster his midfield options.

“Modric is a big loss, he gives the team that balance and he was playing out of his skin,” Roberts told Soccer Extra.

“I’ve been told there is now a big chance we’ll bring in either Martin Petrov or Sulley Muntari to replace him.

“We definitely need a left-sided player. I think David Bentley will go to Everton, and it will be Petrov or Muntari.

“Muntari was the big shout I was hearing over the weekend.

“I think Harry will add two more players. David James is a big one.

“Heurelho Gomes is a wonderful goalkeeper, he knows he can trust his centre halves now, last year he played behind six different combinations.

“Jon Woodgate is back training, Ledley King is performing well, and Sebastien Bassong, what a signing. Vedran Corluka can also play there.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Don’t think Muntari or Petrov could fit into Modric’s role. Neither of them are playmakers. Modric’s is out for six weeks and we got loads of midfielders. Gio should definetly be given a chance. Any idea when Jenas will be fit? ( if he is still with us)I think we should stick to what we have instead of splashing out cash on more players. What would happen to them when Modric is fit?

  2. Muntari will go to the African cup of nations anyway so out of the two he’d be best option cos modric would be back then. Petrov would be the out-and-out left midfielder we’ve been shoutin out for for seasons now. If petrov signs then when modric is fit he can slot into the centre alongside palacios. I’m only giving an arguement for both players. I totally agree with u about gio! He should be giving a chance.

  3. how about the idea of a loan deal for petrov until end off season don’t see why cant happen he won’t get a game at city, aint really seen much off sully.
