Tottenham target £12m Bosnian striker, Manchester City to bid for Diego Forlan
The latest transfer gossip, news and damned lies
Edin Dzeko to Tottenham
The Bosnian has put away nine goals in four games for Bundesliga leaders VfL Wolfsburg, but is unhappy that manager and mentor Felix Magath will be leaving the club for Schalke in the closed season. Accordingly, The Daily Mail report that the £12m-rated striker has caught the attention of Spurs.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: He would fill the hole that
crappy moody striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is likely to leave, but Arsenal, Manchester Utd, Everton and Blackburn are also keen.
Diego Forlan to Manchester City
The Uruguayan has been banging them in for fun at Atletico Madrid this season, and has become a City priority since a move for Barcelona-bound David Villa has petered out.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: City would have no problem stumping up the £20m asking price, but may face yet another shunning if Liverpool’s reported interest proves to be true.
Emmanuel Adebayor to AC Milan
The Togolese striker took a step closer to joining his beloved AC Milan, as owner Silvio Berlusconi admitted “There is a good chance we will get Adebayor” in today’s Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Spoiler truth-o-meter: We’d bet our last chocolate digestive that Adebayor will be playing in black and red next season.
