Tottenham news – Spurs join Gervinho race, Crouch wants Champions League return, Jansson wants exit

Jansson wants exit.

Tottenham shot-stopper Oscar Jansson is unsure whether he will be at White Hart Lane next season, Sky Sports reports.

The Swedish under 21 international, who joined Tottenham in 2007 from Swedish side Karslunds, is uncertain about his future under Spurs manager Harry Redknapp and after loan spells at Exeter and Northampton, Jansson is keeping his options open for a move away from North London.

Jansson said: ‘All that matters to me is to get some time on the pitch. That’s all that you want really, to play as much as possible. That’s what’s important now. I can’t say that I have anything to add, just that I’ve had a few offers and that’s all I can say.’

Spurs have offered Jansson a new contract at Tottenham, but with the signing of Brad Friedel this summer and already Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini ahead of Jansson in the pecking order, the question remains as to whether the Swede will wait for his chance or move for regular football.

Crouch wants Champions League return.

The News of the World reports that Tottenham striker Peter Crouch is desperate for the team to return to the Champions League.

Spurs finished fourth in the 2009/10 season and secured Champions League football for last season, exiting at the hands of Spanish giants Real Madrid. Last season’s fifth placed finish was only good enough for the Europa League and Crouch believes that the side need to get into the Champions League again, if they want to become a top side.

Crouch said: ‘We enjoyed every minute and it’s a shame we didn’t qualify again. We held our own against the best teams in the world and proved we can mix it among the elite. That’s the benchmark and we’ve got to do it again’.

Manager Harry Redknapp has maintained his stance that he wants to keep Crouch at the club this summer, despite rumours that Redknapp is unsatisfied with the form of his strikers last season and the lack of goals that they produced.

Spurs join Gervinho race.

Tottenham have entered into the race to sign Lille playmaker Gervinho, the Daily Star reports. Premier League sides Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle have been linked with the Ivorian and now, Tottenham have declared their interest in the player.

Gervinho was part of the Lille side that won the Ligue 1 trophy last season and capped off the season with a French Cup victory as well. His impressive performances attracted several clubs interested in his services and it was expected that the captain of the Ivory Coast would be an Arsenal player next season.

However, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has entered the race as he is interested in improving his attacking options for next season. Gervinho has his heart set on a move to the Premier League and it is unsure which club he is looking to choose in England.
