Tottenham whizzkid Giovani Dos Santos has failed to make an impact at White Hart Lane and a possible transfer away looks on the cards.
Birmingham City is the latest team to be looking at the Mexican international who lit up the World cup with several fantastic displays. He was nominated for the young plaer of the tournament award too.
Dos Santos has been tracked by the likes of Napoli, Fiorentina and Real Zaragoza of Spain recently but Birmingham are said to be the frontrunners. Alex McCleish see’s him as the ideal player to add that extra flair to keep hold of his teams’ premier league status for at least another season. With the transfer window just hours away from opening, a bid could well be made for the young starlet.
When he signed from Barcelona in 2008 many people believed he could go on to become a club legend. His reputation as a 19-year old playing regularly for Barcelona proves that he was and still is a terrific player. The 21-year old has struggled with life in the premier league some might say but he’s not been given the chance to express himself but fans have already said: “He’s not good enough.”
In my opinion, ‘Gio’ is a great player and I believe he should have a future at Spurs but he needs a bit of luck and a run of games to prove he has what it takes to tackle the best league in the world.
Whether Birmingham can finalise a deal, I don’t know but maybe a loan spell will benefit both him and Spurs? Will he opt for a move back to Spain or even Italy? And can Giovani Dos Santos re-capture his form and become one of the hottest prospects in world football?
