Tottenham Hotspur had a terrible transfer window last summer, and although they spent all the Gareth Bale money, a number of their top signings haven’t played well in the Premier League and have hardly been successful.
Alfred Finnbogason – Tottenham interested
And one of those is Spanish striker Roberto Soldado, who will probably be sold in the summer, and news today that the top London club are going after a Newcastle target, 25 year-old Heerenveen’s Icelandic striker Alfred Finnbogason, who has been prolific in the Eredivisie over the last two seasons.
Newcastle were offered Finnbogason for £5M last summer, but Joe Kinnear didn’t take up the offer.
This season he has scored 31 goals in 34 games for Heerenveen, and since he joined the Dutch club from Helsingborgs IF two years ago, he has scored 59 goals in 69 appearances in Holland.
The Icelandic international has played 21 times for his country and scored four International goals, and a club insider is quoted as saying this:
“I believe there is concrete interest in Finnbogason, yes,” “His record in Holland is superb, and that’s got a lot of top clubs around Europe interested.”
It’s not surprising a number of clubs are now interested in this player, and it’s just a pity we didn’t snap him up last summer for £5M.
