Spanish Star Heading To Spurs?

By on July 20, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Spurs are linked with Santi Carzola.


Tottenham are targeting Malaga and Spain’s goalscoring midfielder, Santi Carzola, as a possible replacement for the want-away Luka Modric.

New Spurs boss Andre Villas Boas has indicated that Modric can leave the club after twelve months of constant rumours about his desire to leave north London, but only if the clubs valuation is met. Spurs are reported to be holding out for £35 million with Real Madrid leading the race to sign him.

So with Modric looking likely to leave, it seems that Spurs could use some of the money from his sale to buy Carzola, who would cost them around £15 million according to the Mirror. The report claims that Carzola could be on his way to the north London club due to disputes over unpaid wages with current club Malaga.

    I would be happy to see Carzola at Spurs, although I would echo some confusion as him being a replacement for Modric, as Modric plays more centrally, while Carzola tends to be more of a winger, I thought. Still, like Modric, Carzola seems a dynamic playmaker in his own right. I could see him working centrally, if needed, but of course his experience as a winger wouldn’t hurt either. Actually, in a 4-3-3 he looks a strong challenge to Lennon, I should think.
