Tottenham demanding twice as much money for their players from Premiership sides
With Tottenham now possessing quality players like Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Sandro and Moussa Dembele in his position, it seems that Scott Parker’s time in White Hart Lane could be ending. That doesn’t mean that the former England international is devoid of fire in his belly, as Scott Parker has always been a fighter. We saw his imperious fighting qualities when he almost single-handedly allowed West Ham to stay afloat several seasons back, even though they did get relegated in the end. Championship-side QPR have had a bid of £2 million accepted for the midfielder. This has prompted Fulham to join the race as Martin Jol wants more steel in his midfield, and the London-based club have matched QPR’s offer.
However, the Daily Express reports that Tottenham have asked Fulham to double their bid if they want the player. The reason for this is that Premier League clubs would be charged £4 million, as the player is going to join one of their competitors. It is probably the brainchild of Daniel Levy, who is known to be one of the toughest negotiators around. This has not dissuaded Fulham from the deal though, as they still want the player to add experience to their squad.
