Harry Redknapp admits Tottenham have enquired about Sevilla's Luis Fabiano but won't pay 'crazy' fee in excess of £25m

Spurs boss likes Brazilian but won't pay over the odds...
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has claimed that he understands the north London outfit have made an approach to sign Luis Fabiano from Sevilla but has admitted that the Spanish club's valuation of the striker is too high.

As earlier revealed by Goal.com UK, the La Liga club want £30 million for the Brazil international but Redknapp has claimed that although he admires the player, he won't meet Sevilla's demands.

"I think the chairman has enquired," Redknapp said. "He is a player that I like. I think you are talking crazy money for him, though.

"He has one year left on his contract, I think, and we are talking in excess of £25m. The figures don't stack up so that won't be a goer at that sort of money.

"There is nothing close to being done, not that I know of. We are nowhere near doing a deal for anybody. I'm not that bothered to be honest.

"We had a couple of targets at the start, and we got one of them, but we have a good squad and we will crack on. If we don't find somebody that we feel will make a difference, we will go with what we've got."

Redknapp also confirmed that he is not interested in signing Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

"I don't think Man City are going to let anybody go to teams around the top group," he added.

"I saw today that Shay Given could go to Arsenal, but I thought Man City weren't going to sell their players to anybody they felt was going to be challenging for a top four spot alongside them. I don't see that happening."
