Zenden linked with Spurs
Dutch winger Boudewijn Zenden is being lined up as a possible replacement for David Ginola at Tottenham.
The flying Dutchman, who has shone at Euro 2000, has reportedly been a long term transfer target of Graham and he could swap life at Barcelona for the offer of Premiership football.
The News of the World newspaper reported Tottenham's interest in Zenden, who is expected to command a fee of around £5m. The player's wage demands are expected to be similar to those of Ginola.
A Spurs insider said: "George knows all about Zenden, although he won't make any moves until after Euro 2000.
"He's an exciting player, he takes players on for fun and is similar in that respect to Ginola.
"The difference is he knows when to cross a ball and his work-rate is tremendous.
"He's very much a team player as he has demonstrated during the summer tournament.
"George Graham likes him enormously."
Zenden's opportunities at the Nou Camp last season were restricted under Louis van Gaal and he played in a more defensive role, but that situation could change with the coach having departed.
