Youngster set to leave north London.
Deportivo La Coruna manager Miguel Angel Lotina has been quoted in the Spanish press as declaring an interest in Tottenham Hotspur forward Giovani Dos Santos.
Deportivo could lose Angel Lafita, who is attracting interest from Real Zaragoza, and Lotina is lining up Dos Santos as a possible replacement.
Dos Santos has made little impact at White Hart Lane following his arrival from Barcelona and was sent out on loan to Championship outfit Ipswich Town last season.
The Mexico international was named as the player of the tournament at the recent CONCACAF Gold Cup, which his side won.
AS quoted Lotina as saying: “I know Giovani very well. Last year we spoke to him, but then Tottenham came in.
“As for Lafita, well, there is nothing. But if he goes then we will start with plan B. Dos Santos is an interesting player, but he is not the only one.” (Independent)
It does seem likely that if a bid does come in from the La Liga side and it is near enough to the original £4.7m that Tottenham paid to Barcelona for the young Mexican starlet, then Harry Redknapp would probably take it seriously and in all likelihood Giovani would jump at the chance of rejuvenating a career that has stuttered at White Hart Lane.
Having failed to break into the first team Dos Santos was sent out on loan last season and whilst he has performed heroics for his national team he still looks no nearer to cracking into the starting eleven and therefore a move seems inevitable and some reports suggest that Deportivo are willing to fork out a fee in the region of £6m for the former Barca man.
