Spurs set to beat Arsenal and Man Utd in race to sign Kjaer

Tottenham look set to have beaten the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd in the race to sign Simon Kjaer. Reports this morning comfirmed that Palermo have accepted a €35m-bid for Defender Simon Kjaer and Striker Edinson Cavani

“Tottenham have bid €35m, an offer we cannot refuse, seeing as the two players have both said they want to leave,” Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini told Sky Italia television, stressing that the Serie A club would reinvest the money received from Spurs.

Danish centre-back Kjaer enjoyed two outstanding seasons at Palermo, helping them to finish fifth in Serie A last season, narrowly missing out on Champions League football.

Kjaer, 21, is highly-rated as one of Europe’s most promising defenders and was a summer target of Arsenal and Manchester Utd, his arrival at White Hart Lane would be a major statement of intent from Redknapp.

    Doubt if Arsenal were ever remotely interested, especially at that price. Funny how they are supposedly after every player mentioned in these rumours. Maybe the give-away is in the use of ‘…the likes of Arsenal …”

    If this is true- we should be aware what a lot of money this is- more than 28 million pounds. It looks like a coup- but could be very risky business for two admittedly promising players who have never played in the EPL before.
    It does show that Spurs are competing in the big league when it comes to spending and attracting talent to the club although I admire that and expect them to overtake us this year on the pitch- especially if Cesc leaves- they are taking a big risk in this financial climate.
