It’s day 12 of the transfer window and iDONSABI takes you transfer stories all across the world with stories touching Andy Carroll and Mario Balotelli the focus for the day.
Spurs in possible move for Carroll?
With the recent injury to Dele Alli in the match against Fulham, Tottenham are reportedly in search for a striker with Andy Carroll identified as a possible shock target.
Spurs are lacking in attacking options with Harry Kane lost to a knee injury, Heung-Min Son out for International commitment at the Asian Cup, Dele Alli recently injured and even Dembele transferred out.
The lilywhites must have been scratching their heads when second-choice striker, Fernando Llorente, who was given his second start in 18 months showed how terrible he could be in front of goal in their last match against Fulham. The striker even went on to score in his own net.
Andy Carroll could be available for as little as 2million pounds according to ESPN. However, recent bids by a Chinese outfit for Marko Arnautovic could make the Hammers have second thoughts about selling the striker.
