Spurs on red alert
Tottenham are on red alert after it emerged that Bayern Munich are ready to offload German international striker Lukas Podolski.
The 23-year-old has struggled to win a regular place in the Bayern side this season and he could leave when the transfer window opens again in January.
Spurs made a bid for Podolski in the summer but were told by Bayern boss Jurgen Klinsmann what he was not for sale. Juande Ramos has lost Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov this season but will face competition for Podolski.
Manchester City are likely to be among the bidders and would have little trouble in meeting the Â£16million plus asking price.
