Can Arsenal, minus Emmanuel Abedayor, get their pre-season preparations on track in the Emirates Cup? They face Atletico Madrid in an intriguing encounter on Saturday.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is still keen to bring Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to the club despite completing the signing of Peter Crouch.

The Spurs boss now has an array of attacking options at his disposal with the England international joining Jermain Defoe, Robbie Keane, Roman Pavlyuchenko and Darren Bent at White Hart Lane.

Redknapp has now revealed that he retains an interest in Huntelaar.

“It is definitely not a no-go,” Redknapp said. “It is still a possibility. If you look at his goalscoring record, it is incredible.

“If he is available then again he is a player that interests me. I think if any top-class player becomes available then you have to be interested and if Darren Bent does go then maybe we will be interested.

“You cannot have too many good players. Competition for places is what it is all about. Look at Manchester United, you could pick two teams from their squad last year.”

But the former Portsmouth boss is unconcerned that the number of strikers will unsettle his squad.

“I don’t care,” he added. “It’s not about keeping them happy, they have to keep me happy and the fans happy – that is what they are paid to do.

“It’s up to them as they have got to fight to play, it’s all about competition for places.”
