Spurs face competition from Chelsea for £24 million striker

Chelsea have today joined Tottenham in the race to sign Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o. The Cameroon international is more than likely to leave the La Liga giants this summer after four years at the club.

Spurs have held an interest in Eto'o for some time now as speculation mounts that Dimitar Berbatov is to leave White Hart Lane this summer. Juande Ramos sees Eto'o as a perfect replacement for Berbatov should eventually leave.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are keen to bring the 27-year old to Stamford Bridge to replace Didier Drogba who has been strongly linked with a move to AC Milan in recent days. Both sides are apparently willing to match the £24 million price-tag on Eto'o's head.

I personally wouldn't mind who Eto'o joined as long as he actually moved to the Premier League. He is a terrific striker that scores bags full of goals wherever he has been and I feel he would be a terrific signing for either of the London clubs.
