A tall order?

Today's Ronny Gill is claiming that we're going to be offered Peter Crouch in the summer. But will we be interested in the man who helped Spurs to beat Italian champions elect AC Milan in their own back yard last week?

There's no doubting that Crouchinho is a very good player and would to an extent serve as a replacement for Rocky. But the price would have to be right (unlikely, given that everyone knows we're flush with the Scousers' cash), as would the wages - particularly for someone who, at 29, would buck our trend of signing youth.

What's more, 'Appy 'Arry only currently has three strikers for his van-der-Vaart-friendly 4-5-1 formation, of whom Crouch has been the most successful. Practically all of the Dutch playmaker's goals seem to have been volleyed finishes from two yards out following knock-downs from his gangly team-mate - which begs the question why 'Arry would be so keen to flog him.
