Our 'flying' reserve winger Adel Taarabt is a target for Malaga, according to reports. Let's be honest, Adel didn't really make the sort of impression Aaron Lennon did when given his chance in the first team. When signed, he was branded the 'new Zidane', a title that has since been harder to find than Wally in a 'Where's Wally?' book.
Malaga have admitted that they have been long-term admirers of Taarabt, and are looking to sign up our young asset this summer. “Malaga have always been on his trail and I would not be surprised if this time they finally made it,” said a representative for the player.
When signed, Adel's potential looked to reincarnate that of Zinedine Zidane. By the looks of things, that statement couldn't be further from the truth; Levy's fallen for another 'hot prospect'
So what did our investment bring? To be fair, Adel had some bright moments, but, as Spurs fans, the moment the ball is given away he receives more boos than Sol Campbell in an Arsenal shirt. His bright moments in the first team were soon relinquished from the memories of Spurs fans; and, with a winning formula and Harry looking to add more players to our ever chopping and changing squad, it is no coincidence that Adel is looking to move.
Goodbye to the lad, I'm sure we'll end up signing him again for £15 million, one day.
