Redknapp feels Van Nistelrooy could join Arsenal

Harry Redknapp insists he has no plans to bring Ruud van Nistelrooy to Tottenham - and believes the Real Madrid striker could still join Arsenal.

Van Nistelrooy, 33, has proved a success in Madrid since joining from Manchester United in 2006, but he appears to have fallen down the pecking order at the club and could be set to move on in January in search of first-team football.

Redknapp says he will not sign Van Nistelrooy as, with Peter Crouch, Robbie Keane, Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko already in the squad, he does not need an additional forward. Nonetheless, many believe Van Nistelrooy could return to the Premier League and, although Arsene Wenger has said he does not intend to sign him, Redknapp feels it would not be a surprise to see him at Emirates Stadium.

"He's a top player," he said. "If he's anywhere near fit, I'm sure he can still play for a while, but I've never enquired for him. He would come over here and score - he always has done.

"I can see him going somewhere like Arsenal. Tottenham is a big club. We shouldn't be afraid to compete with these clubs in the transfer market, but what would I do? I have Crouch, Keane and Defoe and Pav. If I got Van Nistelrooy, I give myself another problem."
