Spurs set sights on £12 million Brazilian

Tottenham are preparing a January move for CSKA Moscow striker Vagner Love in a bid to cure their current striking problems. The Premier League side have struggled for goals this season following the departure of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane during the summer and they now have their sights firmly set on Love.

The Brazilian international has been linked with several moves to England in years gone by but for whatever reasons he has never made the move. Spurs boss Juande Ramos has come under increasing pressure in the last few weeks for the side's poor showing this season, however he is now looking to spend as much as £12 million the bring Love to White Hart Lane.

The 24-year old has made over 100 appearances for CSKA since joining from Brazilain outfit Palmerias back in 2004. He has a terrific goals to game ratio at the Russian giants, scoring almost a goal every second game. I personally feel Love would be superb signing for a side like Spurs. He is a real flair player and I think he is just what Spurs need at this testing time, although they will have to wait until the transfer window opens on New Years day.
