Are Spurs Going To Bite The Milos Krasic Bullet For Us?

Earlier this window, there were entirely too many rumours linking Chelsea with Juventus winger Milos Krasic for my liking. Although Krasic has a flashy reputation and blistering speed, he's deficient in many aspects of the game (including the key 'being better than Salomon Kalou' thing), and I'd quite like those rumours to go away entirely. That won't happen until Juve dump him on someone - a move the Serie A leaders are apparently desperate to make.

Up step Spurs to potentially take one for the team:

Krasic is one of the many names that the transfer market offers, but a successful negotiation will depend on the will of the player. We are happy with our squad. We could do something, though, if a player leaves in the coming hours. Anything is possible.

There's some speculation that the disappointing Steven Pienaar could be on his way out of White Hart Lane, and that would open up space for Krasic to back up Aaron Lennon on the right wing. Although Spurs have obviously got some huge talent on the flanks, their depth is pretty poor there and Krasic might actually be a useful (if incredibly annoying to watch) piece for them, so long as he isn't relied upon.

The piece goes on to say that Juventus have fielded interest from Spurs, Lazio and Zenit St. Petersburg. I'm just glad that 'Chelsea' weren't named anywhere in there. Krasic at a top-level team is a recipe for frustration.

PS: Watch this happen and Krasic turn into a superstar just to annoy me.
