Tottenham will need to up the ante on their original £8.9m bid

It has been reported by ITA Sport Press that Tottenham are looking to make a fresh bid for Palermo’s Uruguayan striker Abel Hernández . The 21-year-old is highly regarded by Tottenham and saw a bid of £8.9 million rejected in the summer. With Pavlyuchenko looking more likely that he will part ways with the club in January; it leaves Adebayor and Defoe as the only two recognisable strikers.

The likes of Real Madrid, Roma, Arsenal and Chelsea have all made past enquiries about the talented striker and it seems that an offer of around €20m would secure his services according to Hernández’s agent.

Hernández joined Palermo in the summer of 2009 from Peñarol and is under contract with the Serie A club until June 2013. The Uruguayan has scored 13 goals in 51 appearances since he joined the club and 3 goals in his first 7 starts for the club this season.

A bidding war between the three London clubs does seem inevitable once the transfer window re-opens in January.
