Chairman Daniel Levy is keen on Fulham’s Berbatov.
In a sensational move Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy wants to bring Fulham star Dimitar Berbatov back to White Hart Lane in a £1.5m transfer, according to the Mirror.
The striker spent two years in north London after an £11m switch from Bayer Leverkusen in 2006, scoring 46 goals in 101 matches for the club in all competitions.
Berbatov then earned a £30.75m move to Manchester United in 2008 – a fee which still remains a club record for the Premier League champions.
Then in 2012 the Bulgaria international moved onto a third English club when completing the £4m transfer to Fulham and has since scored 20 times in 53 games.
However, with Spurs having sold Jermain Defoe to FC Toronto – with the deal being completed on February 28 – and £26m man Roberto Soldado looking short of form, it’s thought the side needs more attacking support.
Emmanuel Adebayor has been in fine touch since new manager Tim Sherwood reinstated the forward into the starting XI, but beyond the 29-year-old the only options are Soldado and Harry Kane.
With plenty of experience in the English top flight and an almost cult status at White Hart Lane, Levy views Berbatov as the ideal candidate to come in and bolster the squad.
Yet Sherwood is not so convinced.
“Everyone knows Berba. He is proven in this division,” the boss was quoted by the Mirror.
“He is a Fulham player and I am not sure what they are thinking about that. But we have options to take us through to the end of the season.”
Tottenham’s local rivals Arsenal have also been heavily linked with the Bulgarian, as they too are struggling for options up-front.
