According to a report in the Daily Mail, Juande Ramos has joined the bidding for Peter Crouch and is ready to launch a Ã‚Â£15million double offer for the unsettled England international, and his team-mate Yossi Benayoun.
Mindful of the fact that he may lose Dimitar Berbatov before the start of next season, the Tottenham manager has apparently identified Crouch as a capable replacement and put together a package he believes will give him the edge over Portsmouth counterpart Harry Redknapp.
Redknapp has persistently refused to be meet the valuation on Crouch of around Ã‚Â£12m and remains confident he is close to landing the 27 year old Liverpool marksman for Ã‚Â£9m at the most.However, Tottenham are prepared to pay the full Ã‚Â£9m asking price for Crouch and a further Ã‚Â£6m for former West Ham midfielder Benayoun.
SpursÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s proposal reportedly holds the greater appeal for Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez, who is eager not only to do business with his fellow Spaniard and close friend Ramos, but gather desperately needed funds to finance his own transfer plans.
