Dos Santos admits Sevilla desire

Tottenham attacker Giovani dos Santos has admitted that he would love to join La Liga side Sevilla after failing to make an impression in London.

The Mexico international joined Spurs for a fee of around €6m in 2008, but ever since has struggled for first team minutes, making just 10 Premier League appearances. He has since spent time on-loan at Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and Racing Santander.

Dos Santos, son of former Brazilian footballer Zizinho, has been linked with several clubs all over Europe this summer, with Sevilla, Valencia and Udinese all suggested as possible suitors, but Andalusia appears to be his favoured destination.

Speaking to AS, the 22-year-old said: “Sevilla are in my preferences. They are a big Spanish club and I love the possibility of playing for this team although I have many more options.

“I want my future to be solved in the coming days. My intention is to return to Spain. If [Sevilla’s] Marcelino is my Coach, it will be even better. I was very comfortable with him at Racing [Santander] and I would also like to play alongside [Frederic] Kanoute.”

The former Barcelona man forced his way back into the thoughts of teams around Europe during the second half of last season after an impressive spell at Marcelino’s Racing, but the main obstacle between him and his move is Spurs’ stubbornness over the price.

It is believed the Premier League side want €6.8m for the Mexican, however Sevilla are understood to have only offered €4m.
