Tottenham will make an approach for Ki Sung-yung before the end of the current transfer window.
The South Korea international has been a revelation since arriving Celtic Park last summer in a £2.1m deal from FC Seoul. His excellent technique has shone in the Scottish Premier League and his fierce right foot has been culpable for some sensational strikes for the Bhoys including a rasping drive in Saturday’s 5-1 win over Dundee United.
The 22-year-old vision and raking angled passes have caught the eye of Spurs boss Harry Redknapp who sees him playing the ‘quarterback’ role spreading the play into the path of wingers Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon. If he was to arrive it would cast doubt on the Tom Huddlestone’s future at White Hart Lanewith the two occupying similar roles though with the Ki rather more dynamic.
Another one of the midfielder’s attractive qualities his is price, with Tottenham hopeful of getting him for around £8m and the relatively low fee means thatr he would not have to sell Luka Modric to fund any sale.
