Loads of Tottenham fans have been giving their verdict on a surprising transfer rumour, as the Lilywhites have reportedly contacted free agent Giuseppe Rossi.
According to Tuttosport (via Sport Witness), Tottenham approached Rossi on Thursday regarding a pay-as-you-play contract.
The Italian striker has been without a club since the summer, when he left Genoa after just a year with the Italian outfit.

Tottenham are of course in all sorts of trouble with their striking department, as Harry Kane is out until March with ankle ligament damage and Son Heung-min is away at the Asian Cup.
That leaves the Lilywhites with just Fernando Llorente to rely on up front, and it’s fair to say Rossi could be an upgrade on the Spaniard.
Rossi has struggled with injuries throughout his career, but is widely considered to be a terrifically talented player, racking up over 100 goals and 30 assists for club and country.
The 31 year-old has been training at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground, where he is said to have impressed coaches with his fitness.
Plenty of Spurs fans still have their concerns about his injury woes though, and you can view some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Makes sense. Let go of one broken-bodied genius, and then sign another broken-bodied not even a genius.

Typical Levy. Watch us take up the buy back option on Kyle Naughton and persuade Scott Parker to make a comeback. Cheapskate Daniel never fails to deliver.
