Tottenham Targets Armindo Bangna Bruma

Tottenham Hotspur has revealed their interest in Sporting Lisbon’s 15-year-old winger Armindo Bangna Brum who is currently thought to be the new Cristiano Ronaldo in the making. The North London club is interested to involve Bruma in the loan deal for Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko.

Armindo Bangna Bruma has already impressed at the Sporting Lisbon youth side. His eye-catching performance for Portugal U-17 squad has earned him an interest from Chelsea too. His pace and ball controlling abilities have led many to believe Portugal has got another future star.

Portuguese side Sporting is highly interested to bring in Pavlyuchenko on a loan deal from Tottenham, but his agent Tomas Zorn is doubtful about Sporting’s financial ability to pay his client’s salary that he is currently being paid at Tottenham.

Roman Pavlyuchenko joined the Suprs in 2008 from Spartak Moscow, but is yet to secure a regular place in Tottenham’s starting eleven. Robbie Keane may leave the Suprs this summer, but still it is less likely that Pavlyuchenko would be able to push himself up the pecking order. Rather, Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is now in the lookout for a quality striker who could help them in the Champions League.

Sevilla’s Luis Fabiano, Nice striker Loic Remy and Real Madrid veteran Raul are reportedly in the target list of Redknapp.


  1. This story simply makes no sense whatsoever.

    Pavlyuchenko averaged a goal for every 123 minutes played last season compared with 133 minutes per goal for Defoe.

    Robbie Keane averaged 160 minutes per goal and Peter Crouch 229 minutes per goal...

  2. Would he play 4 spurs first squad?
