Harry Redknapp has revealed Spurs are in a three-way fight with Arsenal and Liverpool to sign Scott Parker.
The Tottenham chief has also confirmed his interest in highly-rated Lille winger Eden Hazard and admits he will sit down with chairman Daniel Levy to sign “one or two strong characters” this summer.
Asked about Parker, Redknapp said: “Well, he’s a good player, a top player, Footballer of the Year this year.
“I’m sure people are going to be interested in Scott. I know a couple of other clubs are interested, big clubs, but we’ll wait and see.
“Which clubs? Arsenal, Liverpool. I think they’re big clubs in for him. That’s the rumours anyway, that’s what I hear, so it will be hard.”
Asked about 20-year-old Hazard, rated one of the best young talents in the world, he added: “Yeah, I like him.
“I watched him this week. He is a good player, but it’s difficult because there are some good players in this country that I like.
“There’s a few lads over here I would like to go for if we can make some openings. we need to make openings first.”
