Tottenham Hotspur to pull out all the stops in signing Dutch star

Robben may be tempted to join his international colleague in EnglandTottenham Hotspur are considering a monstrous move for Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben in the hope the Netherlands international is prepared to swap Champions League football for a shot at Champions League qualification.

The 27 year has been at the club since 2009 however he has been recommended to Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp by Rafael van der Vaart as the perfect signing to bolster their chances of sealing a top four spot this season. It will not be easy though. Firstly Spurs will have to tempt Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich with enough money for them to feel it would make financial sense, secondly Robben would need to be tempted into a return to the Premier League, a competition he had success with whilst at Chelsea.

Should Robben seriously be tempted by a Europa League campaign and a top four finish then maybe the White Hart Lane side could be onto something. Redknapp does hold a good card in van der Vaart who would provide Robben with a good idea with regards to life in North London but the one barrier currently in the way of Tottenham starting to make a move is the size of their current squad.

The squad needs to be trimmed and Redknapp makes no secret of that. There are numerous players for sale for which Spurs are holding out for their valuation. Should three of four sales go through over the next fortnight then an audacious move for Robben could certainly be on the cards.
