Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed he is still seriously interested in bringing Real Madrid striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to White Hart Lane, despite a deal for Peter Crouch understood to be close to completion.
Reports across the UK press are suggesting the signing of Portsmouth front man Crouch could be wrapped up this week, with a fee of around £10 million thought to have been agreed.
Redknapp has insisted no fee has been confirmed and that talks are ongoing between Spurs chairman Daniel Levy and Peter Storrie, the chief executive at Fratton Park.
Meanwhile, the former Portsmouth and West Ham United boss has refused to rule out the possibility of making a move for Dutch striker Huntelaar.
"My interest in Huntelaar is serious," Redknapp said, according to The Daily Mail.
"We've spoken to Real Madrid and the fee is somewhere between £15m-£17m."
Spurs would have to sell another striker before they could move for both Crouch and Huntelaar. Darren Bent is on the verge of leaving the club and Roman Pavlyuchenko has been linked with a switch to Italy, with Roma reported suitors.
Arsenal are also reportedly set to make a bid for Huntelaar as they aim to replace Emmanuel Adebayor.
