As Tottenham look set to lose Luka Modric to Real Madrid, Andre Villas-Boas is considering making a move for Malaga ace Santi Cazorla as a replacement for the Croatian playmaker, according to Talk Sport.
Cazorla is currently said to be unhappy in Malaga following a dispute over wages, and Spurs will be hoping to lure him to White Hart Lane as they look to offer double his current earnings.
Having cost Malaga £17 million from Villarreal last summer, the Spanish international could be moving away from La Rosaleda just one year on.
However, north London rivals Arsenal have also been linked to the 27 year old, as they look set to part company with Andrei Arshavin, who is looking for a permanent move to Zenit St Petersburg.
The arrival of Santi Cazorla to the Premier League would no doubt add to the wealth of talent that England’s top flight has to offer, as the Spaniard featured in both of Spain’s European Championship winning campaigns, only missing the 2010 World Cup due to injury.
Andre Villas-Boas has already stated his intent at revamping the Spurs squad this transfer window to turn them into genuine title contenders, and Santi Cazorla would mark another high profile signing this summer having already secured the services of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Emmanuel Adebayor.
