Wigan Athletic are preparing a deadline day bid for Tottenham winger Giovani dos Santos according to the Daily Mail.
The Mexican international has struggled to ever make his mark in north London, and consequently is being readied for a permanent transfer away from the club.
Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has a surplus of midfield options available to him at White Hart Lane, but is holding out for £9million for the creative midfielder.
Latics boss Roberto Martinez wants to add more creativity to his DW Stadium squad, and is hoping to reach agreement with Tottenham over a potential transfer.
Sevilla and Udinese remain interested in Dos Santos, with the La Liga outfit having already made a firm offer - reported by Sky Sports' leading Spanish correspondent Guillem Balague as being €4million.
But that figure will not be enough to activate negotiations, despite the player's preference for a move to Spain, leaving Wigan as the frontrunners to secure his signature.
