Royston Drenthe could be on the verge of his dream move to the Premier League by following international temamate Rafael Van Der Vaart into White Hart Lane.
If the whispers are to be believed, Drenthe could be set to reject the advances of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger in order to secure a move to Harry Redknapp’s title hopefulls.
Currently on loan to Hercules CF from Spanish giants Real Madrid, Drenthe would welcome the chance of a permanent move away from the Bernabeau after failing to cement a regular place in Jose Mourinho’s championship chasing side.
The young Dutchman, who already has more than 20 international appearances ranging from U21 level up to his first full cap in the senior side , is said to be keen on linking up with international teammate Rafael Van Der Vaart at the Lane despite many believing that the Emirates would be his eventual destination.
Drenthe 23, who has also attracted the attention of both Liverpool and numerous Spanish clubs in recent months, would appear to have all the attributes required to succeed in the Premier League. Whilst being one of the quickest players in any of the major european leagues, he shows good strength on the ball and an eye for an early pass ….. a good skill to possess given the pace of the game in the English top flight.
Whether the pacey wideman is in fact on Harry Redknapp’s radar ….. only time will tell, but with Aaron Lennon’s hit and miss form of recent months and David Bentley’s imminent exit from the Lane, Drenthe would appear (on paper at least) to fit the bill for Harry’s side.Follow @TrfficTottenham
