Tottenham are ready to offer £12 million for Manchester City defender Micah Richards.

The Daily Express says England defender Richards’ place in the City team under Roberto Mancini could be under threat this month, with the new manager set to reshape his team with big-money moves for several players.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has been an admirer of Richards for some time and is ready to make a bid for a player whose career seems to have stalled after a meteoric start.

Ironically, Richards has confessed to being a mad Arsenal fan when growing up.
