Coyle plots £4m raid on Tottenham

Tottenham winger Giovani Dos Santos is being tracked by Bolton Wanderers according to the Mirror.

The Mexican winger, who came to prominence as a teenager at Barcelona, has fallen well short of his projected target since signing for Juande Ramos’ Spurs in 2008.

But with long-term injuries to a number of key players at Bolton, Owen Coyle has identified Dos Santos as a player to help his side climb up the league, and is willing to meet the £4 million asking price.

The Mexican – who continues to turn out for his national side – has always been on the fringes of Harry Redknapp’s side. A bid just short of the asking price from Sevilla failed to secure him a return to Spain in the summer, and now Owen Coyle will look to persuade Dos Santos that his immediate future lies at the Reebok Stadium.

Coyle has been an admirer of Dos Santos for a number of years and attempted to sign him while he was manager of Burnley.

With the proceeds from the sale of Gary Cahill to Chelsea, Coyle may finally get his man.
