Spain international David Villa is reportedly a summer transfer target for Tottenham.
In a bid to secure Champions League football next season, Andre Villas-Boas has targeted Villa to fire the club back into the top four.
Villa has been with Barcelona since 2011, but has struggled to hit top gear this season after recovering from a serious injury.
Nevertheless, the striker has still chipped in with 16 goals and five assists this season.
Villa will most probably replace Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor, who has had a poor season to say the least. The former Arsenal star has only scored five goals this season, leaving Villas-Boas with no other choice than to look for another striker.
Villa has shown his worth at club level and also at international level. Villa has netted 53 goals in 88 games for the Spanish national side - this emphasises the fact that he is highly capable when playing on a world stage.
He has excellent technical ability allowing him to exploit any opponent and can produce goals through his excellent knowledge of the game: Villa's excellent movement manipulates defences and creates endless chances for him and his team-mates.
Despite, Villa being 31 he still has a lot to offer and can surely take Tottenham to the next level.
Some say that he lacks the physical presence to be effective in the Premier League; however, Chelsea's Juan Mata has previously proved this is not always the case.
Villa is the missing piece in the Tottenham jigsaw; with the world-class striker Tottenham will surely achieve a top-four finish.
