Bryan Ruiz has claimed that he’s held transfer talks with Tottenham Hotspur according to the Metro.

The Costa Rican striker is on Harry Redknapp’s striker shortlist with the Spurs boss keen to freshen up his attacking options.

Ruiz has impressed during his the past few seasons at FC Twente scoring 33 goals in 61 games.

He now looks set to leave the Eredivisie and revealed that he has a 50/50 chance of moving to White Hart Lane.

They have approached my agent.: He said.

“I was told about Tottenham’s interest two days ago.

“Spurs are a great club. I’d say that the chance that I’ll leave Twente is 50 per cent.

The Spurs boss has missed out on Juan Mata and Giuseppe Rossi and is desperate to bring a new face to his forward line.

There is a £13.75 million release clause in his contract, which could tempt Redknapp into making a move for Ruiz after missing out on other targets.

He would prove a relatively cheap option in the current market and he does hold Champions League experience.

It’s thought Redknapp will have to sell before he can think of buying with one of Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko certain to leave North London this summer.
