Tresor Mputu: Ready for a move to England

The 27-year-old TP Mazembe striker claims to have been wanted at Spurs and Rovers earlier in his career, but opted against a transfer in order to continue his development at home.

He is now ready to play in England and is reportedly being tracked by Tottenham, Arsenal and Fulham.

He said: "I have been invited by Tottenham before with Harry Redknapp, and also Blackburn when Paul Ince was in charge, but it did not materialise because I was not ready to come to England. Now I am ready."

Mputu, who is thought to be valued at around £1m, was banned for a year in 2010 for harassing a referee during a Cecafa Club Cup match.

He is currently preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations, which take place in South Africa from January 19th to February 10th.

Suarez 'too good for Arsenal'

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
