Liverpool to make shock move for Tottenham midfielder

Dos Santos may prefer to remain in SpainLiverpool have emerged as shock contenders to sign Tottenham midfielder and Mexican international, Giovani dos Santos.

The attacking midfielder arrived at White Hart Lane from Barcelona in 2008, but has made more appearances on loan away from the club in the three years since then. The 22 year-old has enjoyed decent success on loan with the likes of Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and most recently, Racing Santander.

Dos Santos has been handed slightly more attention by his native Mexico, making over 50 appearances for the national side since 2007 when he made his debut at the age of 18. During his spell at Racing Santander, dos Santos scored 5 times in 16 appearances and is rumoured to be looking for a permanent stay in Spain which could impede Liverpool.

The attacker was somewhat forgotten at the North London side but since making the move to La Liga, seems to have revived his profile somewhat.

However, before Liverpool invest any more money in their midfield, they may be forced to sell some fringe players such as Joe Cole, Alberto Aquilani and Maxi who have all been linked with an Anfield exit in recent months.

Although dos Santos is thought to prefer a move to warmer climates, if the Merseysiders will meet the £9.7m price-tag of the Mexican star, they could tempt Spurs into selling.
