It seems that Spurs have been linked with almost every striker in Europe this transfer window but today the Daily Mail has thrown a new name into the ring. It has emerged that Spurs may be pursuing a deal for Twente striker Bryan Ruiz.
It is thought that Harry Redknapp is weighing up a number of options but may move for the Costa Rican 25 year old. He has a £13.75 minimum fee release clause.
In a recent interview Ruiz said: “They have approached my agent. I was told about Tottenham’s interest two days ago. Spurs are a great club. I’d say the chance that I leave Twente is 50 per cent.”

Crouch happy at Spurs.
Peter Crouch has stated his desire to remain at Tottenham and has urged Luka Modric to do the same. Crouch has been linked with a string of clubs this summer when it emerged that Spurs must sell before they can buy.
Speaking after scoring for Spurs against Athletic Bilbao on Saturday he said: “You know you are competing for things and I know I will get my fair share of games. I know the manager has put a lot of faith in me. If I’m here I know I’m going to get chances to play.”
New Blues Modric bid.
Sky Sports sources have confirmed that they expect Chelsea to make a third bid of £30 million for Luka Modric early this week. They have already had two bid rejected but Chelsea appear determined to keep their man.
The Croatian midfielder has claimed that Spurs told him they would listen to offers from big clubs when he renewed his contract last year. This has led to him making accusations about mistreatment which has made the whole situation rather difficult.
Redknapp has stated on several occasions he wants to keep the player and re-iterated this desire: “We are not going to sell our best players. We’re looking to sell some of our fringe players but we have had no takers.”
