Arsenal

Russian hitman to become subject of Spurs bid

Published

on

Ignoring his involvement in the 2012 African Cup of Nations, Tottenham are prepared to wait until the Ivory Coast’s involvement in the tournament is over to utilize potential signing, Seydou Doumbia.

The striker is currently away on the tournament after being selected with full justification, boasting an incredible goalscoring record at his last two clubs.

If it wasn’t impressive enough to leave Swiss side Young Boys with a record of 57 goals in 78 games, the 24 year-old now has an even more impressive ratio of 45 goals in 57 appearances for CSKA Moscow.

Taking the statistics into account, Doumbia is definitely a promising player that any manager would sign given the chance, and Harry Redknapp is keen to add the player to his squad and make the ‘major signing’ he hinted at in December.

Spurs currently have the impressive form of on loan-Emmanuel Adebayor to rely on in front of goal but the side are looking to add even more attacking bite as the club’s hierarchy strive to cement their place in the Premier League’s top four.

The North London outfit currently find themselves sitting third in the domestic league after a surprisingly good start to the 2011-12 campaign, and whispers are doing the rounds as to whether Spurs could go the whole way and win the title.

Harry Redknapp has a number of fringe players on his hands that he is apparently keen to get rid of and the likes of Niko Kranjcar, Vedran Corluka and Jermain Defoe could all be sold in an effort to complete a deal for the £20m-rated Doumbia.

One bench player that could be especially helpful in this deal however is Roman Pavlyuchenko, who has been linked with a move back to Russia and could be used as a part of a player-plus-cash deal as a like-for-like swap.

It’s probably safe to say that the Premier League is a step up in requirements when compared to the Russian Premier League, but if the prolific Ivory Coast international could replicate his goalscoring form in England, he will be one of the most valuable transfers in recent history.
