Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is prepared to go toe-to-toe with the Premier League big spenders to bring in a ‘special’ signing in January according to BBC Sport.
The White Hart Lane club have enjoyed a terrific start to the season and sit in the top four of the Premier League with a game in hand over all of their rivals. But Redknapp has revealed that he wants to strengthen his squad in January and a big name signing is his priority as he wants his talented side to be taken seriously at the top of the table.
Carlos Tevez has been linked with a move to North London in the window, but Redknapp is not confident of bringing the Argentinean to Spurs next month but is hopeful that he and his chairman can bring someone in that will turn a few heads.
Talking about Carlos Tevez, Redknapp said: “He’s a special player who could make the difference, but I wouldn’t think that’s a possibility.”
“The chairman would back me all the way if we felt it was someone who could take us that extra little bit forward,” he added.
“If someone came along who we thought was special and could make a difference, we’d go for him.”
“But finding them is very difficult, there aren’t many around like that.”
