Kone could be Spurs' man
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Spurs have reportedly made an early move to sign Sevilla striker Arouna Kone as they attempt to land him ahead of other top clubs.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is said to have identified the Ivory Coast international as a potential summer recruit and hopes an early raid in the summer transfer window will help him grab him ahead of Premier League rivals Stoke City and Spanish clubs Atletico Madrid and Levante, where the 28-year-old was on loan last season.
Kone, who had an impressive campaign at Levante scoring 15 goals to help them to sixth place in La Liga which secured a first-ever foray into Europe next season, is believed to be keen on a move to the Premier League.
However, much could depend on whether Spurs go into the Champions League next season - something they will earn on Saturday if Chelsea fail to beat Bayern Munich in this season's final.
