Tottenham boss Juande Ramos seems keen to replace the inevitable outgoing Dimitar Berbatov with a number of strikers. Recent reports suggest that Tottenham are to move for either Marcelo Moreno or Diego Milito in the summer.
With Berbatov expected to leave in the summer, Ramos will need to secure a big name signing in order to satisfy the White Hart Lane faithful if Berbatov leaves.
Marcelo Moreno is one of South America’s hottest properties, and plys his trade for Brazilian side Cruzeiro. The striker has been in prolific form this season, and Tottenham have already had an initial bid rejected. Moreno told the Brazilian press “I was told about the offer from Tottenham. Of course i want to play in England, but the club has to get an agreement with my agent, and from what i know what has been offered is not enough”.
The Daily Mirror suggests that Diego Milito is also on his way to White Hart Lane. The Ã‚Â£10 million rated striker currently plays for Real Zaragoza, however with Zaragoza relegated the Argentinian is set to leave the club this summer. Milito is of similiar stature to Berbatov, and may be seen as a direct replacement.
Tottenham have been linked with numerous strikers including Dean Ashton and Samuel Eto’o. Eto’o had seemed destined for the club, however is thought that the Cameroon star’s wage demands were far too high for Ramos’s liking, and negotiations broke down between club and player.
