Following the news that Andre Villas-Boas is to become the new Tottenham manager, the Metro is this afternoon reporting that he will make a move for Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge.
With pre-season set to begin at Tottenham in the next couple of weeks, Villas-Boas may take some time to assess his squad before any solid transfer moves, but he already knows Sturridge well.
The former Porto boss used him regularly while manager of Chelsea and now speculation is suggesting that a £10m bid for Sturridge is being line up.
The player himself certainly wants discussions with Chelsea about his future. The 22-year-old didn’t play too much under new manager Roberto Di Matteo and with ambitions to play for England, he will not want to sit on the bench.
Perhaps Sturridge can use the Olympics as a stage to show everyone what he can do. He is set to lead the line for Great Britain and will hope that afterwards, his future will be sorted.
There is no doubt that Villas-Boas would be interested in the striker though as he looks to build a successful team at White Hart Lane.
As ever with these stories, it is a case of wait and see. With Liverpool also interested according to the Daily Star, it should be a fascinating one.
