Spurs New Favourites To Sign £15m Striker
By Football Talk.
Tottenham have been boosted in their pursuit of striker Edinson Cavani after Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini ruled out a move to Inter Milan, leaving Spurs in pole position for the £15m forward.
The 23-year-old Uruguay international has been linked with both Spurs and Inter Milan in recent weeks and it was thought a move to the San Siro was on the cards, but Zamparini insists he wont be doing any deal with Rafa Benitez’s side.
“I will never hand Cavani to Inter,” Zamparini told the Italian ReteRete24 Web site. “I will never begin negotiations with the Nerazzurri, both because I don’t think they are genuinely interested and I didn’t like the attitude of some of their directors.”
Cavani has been representing Uruguay at the World Cup and formed part of an impressive attack along with Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez. The 23-year-old netted 13 goals in 34 games last season for Palermo, helping them to a 5th place finish in Serie A.
Tottenham have made firm enquiries for the 6ft striker and rumours surfaced last week that they had even submitted an offer for both Cavani and his team-mate Kjaer, but this was quickly dismissed as speculation by Spurs. Harry Redknapp is keen to shack-up his strike force ahead of next season with Robbie Keane linked with a move back to Celtic and Roman Pavlyuchenko also likely to leave White Hart Lane.
