Scott Parker heading for White Hart Lane?

Published

on

With rumours rife that West Ham have confirmed talks with Tottenham regarding the possible sale of Scott Parker, there is one question that becomes immediately obvious if the deal is done. Is he the direct replacement for £30 million rated Croatian playmaker Luka Modric?

With the pint sized central midfielder still the subject of rumours around the country involving his potential move to Chelsea and Modric being left out of Tottenham’s squad that faced Manchester United on Tuesday, you would be forgiven for believing that the two deals would coincide. However, in a recent statement about this weekend’s game against Manchester City, Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp claimed the 25 year old Croatian would play and that the saga was in fact “finished”.

If the scenario remains the same therefore, and Scott Parker also arrives from West Ham before the transfer window closes in less than a week’s time, then Redknapp’s midfield will be a topic of some debate. Centre midfielders in the shape of Tom Huddlestone, Jermaine Jenas, Sandro, Rafael Van der Vaart and Honduran Wilson Palacios are already on the books at Tottenham, not to mention Steven Pienaar, Modric’s Croatian counterpart Niko Kranjcar and ever growing talented youngster Jake Livermore all contesting for a place in Spurs’ boiler room. It is therefore, hard to see quite where all these big names will play a part in Redknapp’s plans this season barring a host of injuries in one position of course.

The answer to Tottenham’s midfield congestion could be Chelsea after all. With the impending arrival of Scott Parker at White Hart Lane, we may well see a deal struck with Chelsea for the big money sale of unsettled Luka Modric which would line the pockets of Daniel Levy nicely that’s for sure! Modric is a highly talented player no doubt but with similarly orientated Van der Vaart, Pienaar and up and coming Livermore already at Tottenham, coupled with the arrival of Parker, no one could blame Redknapp for selling his prize possession for a not too shabby £30 million. Looking at the facts, it even makes sense Harry.
