With Arsenal in search and in need of a new forward and Dimitar Berbatov’s agent stating that the Bulgarian striker was unhappy at Fulham, it seemed like all the pieces were being put together with Betbatov making a move to Arsenal.
However according to Fulham, they have insisted on not having received any kinds of offers or bids for Berbatov. Rumors spread like wildfire concerning the future of Dimitar Berbatov as he was reported to have stated that he wants to leave Fulham during the January transfer window but now according to the new boss of Fulham, Rene Meulensteen there is no problem at all regarding Berbatov.
“No. There is no problem at all, he is a Fulham player.” Rene Meulensteen said.
The performances and goals scored by Berbatov since his arrival might be an indicator on why he is feeling unhappy at the club. Last season he made 33 appearances for Fulham and scored 15 goals while this current campaign is going around in the same fashion. He is no longer the same player of some years ago that used to destroy defenses back when he played in Manchester United.
Tottenham has already managed to offload Jermain Defoe over to the MLS side Toronto as the player will be joining them on Februay and when Defoe eventually departs Tottenham, the only attacking options left for them will be Adebayor and Soldado.
It is believed that Tottenham could be eyeing a possible move for Berbatov as an option that can allow the manager Tim Sherwood the chance on rotating players whenever it may be needed. The transfer window is still far from over giving Arsene Wenger the chance to make a move for Berbatov if they indeed want to sign him up and if they don’t Tottenham can become a more likely destination for the Bulgarian forward as he is nearing the last few years of his career.
