Spurs turn attentions from Villa to £23 million Brazilian

Tottenham have today turned their attentions to CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love after admitting defeat in the race to sign David Villa. Love has been linked with a move to the Premier League before, with Chelsea said to be interested in him in the past. (footylatest)

The Brazilian international has attracted the attentions of Spurs boss Juande Ramos over the past few months with his performances for CSKA and Brazil. The 24-year old is likely to cost Spurs a massive £23 million and he is seen by many as a terrific replacement for the Manchetser United bound Dimitar Berbatov.

There is no doubt Spurs have to start preparing for life after Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov because when clubs like Liverpool and United come looking for a player they usually get them. CSKA recently lost striker Jo to Manchester City so they will be holding out for a big transfer fee if they are to let go of Love.
