Spurs Join Wigan, West Brom, Everton & Boro In Hunt For Serbian Striker


Tottenham Hotspur
are the latest Premier League club to be linked with a January move for Hertha Berlin striker Marko Pantelic, with Everton, Middlesbrough, Wigan Athletic and West Bromwich Albion all reportedly interested in the Serbian International.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is light in the striker department and despite Argentine Fernando Cavenaghi being heavily linked with a switch to White Hart Lane next month from Ligue 1 side Bordeaux. Redknapp sees Pantelic as a cheap option to bolster his frontline at the North London club, with the Serbian out of contract in the summer and it understood that the Berlin side are prepared to let Pantelic leave for the Premiership in January.

30-year-old Pantelic has been at Hertha since joining from Red Star Belgrade in 2005 and has scored 42 goals in 101 Bundesliga appearances during his time at the Olympic Stadium. Pantelic made his International debut for Serbia in 2003 and has been capped 22 times.

Despite the interest of the Latics along with the Toffees, baggies and Boro, Pantelic could favour a move to Spurs due to the fact that he speaks the same language as Tottenham players Luka Modric and Vedran Corluka, who arrived at White Hart Lane in the summer from Dinamo Zagreb and Manchester City respectively.
