Tottenham talks on going with Spaniard

David Villa Barcelona forwardTottenham are said to be in talks over the signing of £10m-rated striker David Villa this summer from Barcelona, according to the Daily Mail.

Andre Villas-Boas is looking to add to his front line and is already on the trail of long-term target Leandro Damiao from Internacional but he would like to add Villa as well.

The Spanish international has had a miserable season at the Nou Camp where first-team football has been hard to come by due to a succession of injury problems and a lack of form.

The Catalan giants are willing to sell Villa but they want around £12m for his services which may be more than Spurs want to pay, while Arsenal have also been strongly linked.

Much could depend on whether Spurs manage to offload Emmanuel Adebayor who is said to be on massive wages at White Hart Lane, yet has been average at best for the club this season.
