Downing is tipped to be top of Redknapp's targets for January.Spurs have supposedly made a bid of Hossam Ghaly, Gilberto and Adel Taarabt as part of a player-plus-cash deal to bring to highly rated winger to White Hart Lane. Middlesbrough have stated that they want £15million and the only player they want as part of the deal is Welsh Left-wing-back Gareth Bale.
There are lots of other names linked with a move to Spurs with Liverpool's Ryan Babel who is back up if they fail to sign Downing. They have also been linked with a bid to bring back out of form Robbie Keane who hasn't performed at all for Liverpool this season. Redknapp is also looking to strenghen his defence with a double bid rumored for London rivals West Ham's Robert Green and Matthew Upson because of The Hammers financial difficulty's.
Another name linked is Argentinian striker Fernando Cavenaghi. Spurs have made a bid of £8million for the Bordeaux goal-machine. Cavenaghi has hinted he would love a move to the Premiership as its the best league in the world. We'll just have to wait and see if Redknapp will make a move for these players come January 1st.
