Spurs to fight Hammers for Babel

8

White Hart Lane

Spurs are reportedly locked in talks with Liverpool in a move for Ryan Babel.

Spurs have been thwarted in their attempts to bring in a new striker so far and have turned to the out-of-favour Liverpool forward.

Roy Hodgson is thought to let Babel move on for the right price, though he has been rumoured to be being used as a make-weight in a move for West Ham’s Carlton Cole.

With Robbie Keane likely to seal yet another deadline day move, Spurs will need a fourth striker if they are to compete on four fronts this season.

Liverpool will however be keen on securing a replacement before they let the Dutch flyer go.

Babel will probably jump at an opportunity to escape a miserable time on Merseyside and will have plenty to prove in the Premier League.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I'm sure many will agree that Babel has been toilet most of the times he has played for Liverpool

    With the (very) occasional flashes of brilliance

    So a very large part of me cringed upon reading this story

    Then I thought, perhaps this is another player that Harry can work his magic on, its a long shot, but no doubt the boy has talent (somewhere) and it might just take the right manager to bring it out of him

    That being said, he's no Ashley Young

    COYS

  2. this has got to be a wind-up, he's not a patch on any of the current spurs forwards and won't get on the wings before lennon or bale. Spurs gonna miss the boat again.

    But then I thought, perhaps this is one of the players that Harry can put his arm around and really get the best out of, because no doubt the boy has talent….somewhere

  4. Looks like this is actually a swap deal with West Ham with Carlton Cole going in the other direction. I hope.

    2 hours left. I'm getting nervous.
