Tottenham fans here at the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with interest as it is claimed by FootyLatest.com that the Lilywhites are lining up a swoop for FC Twente defender Douglas.
The player has previously been linked with a move to Newcastle United yet now it seem Andre Villas-Boas has set his sights on the 25-year-old who they have more than done their homework on, scouting him on multiple occasions this season.
The club are facing a battle to finish in the top four yet again and AVB knows that next season is likely to be the same and wants top class players in his squad who he can rotate and be able to rely on on numerous fronts. William Gallas looks set to leave the club this summer and given the injury issues the club have faced, AVB is fully aware that defensive reinforcements are much needed at White Hart Lane.
It will not be a simple task however with Enschede-based Twente keen to hold onto their best players and willing to put up a massive fight in order to keep the Brazilian born player who was subject to advances from other clubs last season.
Will Spurs home in on Douglas come the summer? Rate this rumour below.
