Tottenham are considering a cut price deal to bring Dimitar Berbatov back to White Hart Lane from Fulham, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Chairman Daniel Levy is keen to complete the deal, despite Berbatov’s controversial departure for Manchester United in 2008, although head coach Tim Sherwood does not believe the club need any more strikers.
Berbatov’s agent has admitted the forward is considering a move from Fulham this month, and has been previously linked with a switch to north London rivals Arsenal.
Despite the fact Jermain Defoe will leave Tottenahm for MLS side Toronto FC at the end of February, Sherwood has told Levy and director of football Franco Baldini that he is happy to work with the players he already has at his disposal until the end of the season.
But that has not stopped Levy looking at potential January business, and Berbatov is one of those who he has targeted.
The 32-year-old has less than six months to run on his current Fulham contract, meaning he would only cost Tottenham around £1.5million.
Berbatov spent two years at Tottenham, managing 46 goals in 102 appearances, before moving to Manchester united in a deal worth over £30million in the summer of 2008.
Levy failed in a last ditch attempt to bring the Bulgarian back to White Hart Lane at the end of August 2012, before Berbatov signed for Fulham.
