The Mirror is reporting this morning that Tottenham are demanding 20million pounds for Jermain Defoe this after they were quoted 22million pounds by Marseille for their strike Remy. So from a Spurs perspective it is simple: sell Defoe for a high fee and use the cash to buy Remy.
Now I do not think that Liverpool hould pay that much for Defoe. Yes, English players are over priced but I think we have learnt from our mistakes. We over paid, in my opinion, for Carroll, Downing and Henderson, simply because they were English. Now Tottenham are probably chancing it now with Defoe after they heard we are interested in him and have thus inflated the price because it is Liverpool that want him.
Do you think we should pay 20million for Defoe?
