After it was confirmed that Barcelona won`t make a move to sign Giuseppe Rossi, Spurs are straight away linked with trying to sign him.
Despite failing to get the striker in January, Spurs might be tempted to try again, should they receive any encouragement from the player and his agent, but I still wonder of this will be another disappointment as the player might either prefer to move elsewhere, with Italy being a previously stated option or he might decide to stay where he is for a season in the hope that Barca call again next season, when they have more money to spend.
Perhaps with Llorente, it will be down to whether the player pushes for a move, because the indications are that Bilbao don`t have to sell due to financial restrictions, but have they promised the player a move in the past? Initially there were rumours of his moving to someone like Real Madrid, but they seem to have several other targets ahead of him and with the reality that the biggest clubs may now not want him, could a new challenge in the Premiership appeal?
We have all dreamt of such a big striker signing, but are we going to again get excited over a rumour with no deal at the end of it all? My personal feeling with both of these players is that they would prefer other moves over Spurs, and might only look upon us, only as a means to get away from their current clubs and possibly enhance their reputations with a successful move to the Prem. But as both are still young enough to stick around for another window or two, I can see them either waiting for a possible late bid from a box office side or simply waiting for another 12 months, in the hope that another great season will be enough to finally tempt someone into giving them their dream move...
