Lukas Podolski tempted by Tottenham interest

Germany forward Lukas Podolski has revealed he is tempted by an approach from Tottenham Hotspur.

Reports in the German media have claimed Spurs manager Juande Ramos is ready to pay £10 million to bring Podolski to the Premier League, while Serie A side Juventus are also interested.

Podolski, Germany's leading scorer at Euro 2008, has failed to cement a first-team place at Bayern Munich despite his importance to the national team.

Jurgen Klinsmann, who gave Podolski his international debut while in charge of Germany, will take over Munich coach next season, but it now appears the Polish-born forward could have left the Allianz Arena before then.

Speaking of the approaches from Tottenham and Juvents, Podolski told German daily Express: "I was informed of the interest of both of these clubs and I find it very interesting."

Podolski, the outstanding young player at 2006 World Cup, joined Bayern for 10 million euros two years ago after a spectacular start to his career with second division Cologne. But his Munich career has largely failed to ignite under Ottmar Hitzfeld.

Tottenham manager Ramos is facing a fight to keep hold of his star forward Dmitar Berbatov, who is attracting interest from a number of Europe's leading clubs, including AC Milan and Manchester United.
