Tottenham Manager Harry Redknapp Eyeing on William Gallas

Former Arsenal captain William Gallas has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur. The 32-year-old French centre back is now a free agent following the expiration of his contract with Arsenal. Now, he is considering a move to Arsenal’s North London rival Tottenham.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has recently revealed his interest in Gallas, despite sensing a possible opposition from the Suprs fans who may not like to welcome someone who played for arch-rivals Arsenal.

William Gallas joined the Gunners in 2006 from Chelsea and has had a successful stint at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal was even interested to extend his contract, but the club could not agree with his personal terms including a weekly salary around £80,000 and a new two-year deal.

However, Redknapp is pretty much interested in the 32-year-old who could bolster his defense. Redknapp recently said to the media, “I like Gallas. I think he's a great free transfer. It is a possibility. His people have rung up and we spoke about it. He is an experienced player. He has played at the top level, he won championships with Chelsea.”

It is a true that Gallas would definitely add experience to the Spurs if signed, but whether his contribution at Tottenham would be as effective as it was at Chelsea and Arsenal is an entirely different issue.
