Tottenham Hotspur winger Giovani Dos Santos is to become the subject of a summer transfer tussle between two La Liga clubs according to talkSPORT.

The 22-year-old Mexican international has struggled to make the grade in north London, but after a series of successful loan spells, has caught the attention of both Villarreal and Sevilla.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has never had any doubts over Dos Santos' ability, but since he moved to White Hart Lane from Barcelona in 2008 - the majority of his football has been played away from Totttenham, having spent time at Racing Santander, Galatasaray and even Ipswich Town.

Dos Santos could also be handed an opportunity in Italy by Serie A side Udinese, however Sevilla are the clear frontrunners for the player's signature after manager Marcelino Garcia Toral made his admiration for the Tottenham midfielder public.


"We have no real need for any players and any changes in the transfer market are not expected," he said. "The squad will be complete once we have completed the signing of a striker."

When pressed on whether Dos Santos was the striker he coveted, Toral confirmed, "I cannot deny it. He is my target in the transfer window."

Dos Santos also turned in a number of impressive performances for Mexico in this summer's Gold Cup, which may work in Tottenham's favour as they seek as much money as possible for the player.
