Quartet queue up for Tamudo

Topics

Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United are all mulling moves for Espanyol forward Raul Tamudo, according to Sport.

The 32-year-old forward is the Spanish side's all-time record goal-scorer, having plundered 129 league goals in 334 appearances since 1996.

The Periquitos are likely to finally bid farewell to the former Spain international in the New Year, in order to recoup some cash for his services before his contract expires at the end of the season.

And as a result, Tamudo is set to be the subject of a January scramble involving a host of English outfits.

White Hart Lane supremo Harry Redknapp is believed to have earmarked the vastly experienced forward as a possible replacement for unsettled Russian Roman Pavlyuchenko.

While Portsmouth, Wigan - managed by Spaniard Roberto Martinez - and Newcastle are also said to be admirers of the striker.

The Magpies are thought to be ready to offer the Estadi Cornellà-El Prat outfit Spanish full-back Jose Enrique in part-exchange.
