Tottenham battling to compete with Man City for Cavani

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is scrambling to land Palermo striker Edinson Cavani.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is scrambling to land Palermo striker Edinson Cavani.

The Daily Mail says Redknapp and his scouting staff like Cavani, Radamel Falcao, Edin Dzeko, Diego Forlan, Vincenzo Iaquinta and Luis Fabiano but there are pros and cons to each.

Primarily the concerns revolve around budget, age and value for money. Cavani is expensive at £25m and Manchester City have also posted an interest in the 23-year-old to put a sparkle in the eyes of the Palermo president - so a deal would not be straight forward.

Redknapp is a fan but may need to offload Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko before he can bring in what he wants. City defender Micah Richards remains on his possible incomings too.
