Spurs join Gunners in race for £12 million South American !

Spurs have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz according to reports in The Guardian today.
Santa Cruz joined Rovers last year from Bayern Munich and had an outstanding debut season in the Premier League bagging 19 goals, for then Mark Hughes' side. New boss Paul Ince has vowed to try and cling onto the Paraguayan international, despite Santa Cruz saying he is open to offers.

Tottenham may well need to recruit a new striker in this transfer window if not two, as both Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov are being heavily linked with moves to Liverpool and Man United respectively. Spurs face stiff competition, though for Santa Cruz' signature with Arsenal also in the hunt for the £12 million rated 26 year old.
