Tottenham keen on Spanish capture

davidvilla.jpgTottenham Hotspur are still looking into the possibility of Barcelona forward David Villa joining them this summer, according to The Guardian.

The 31-year-old striker is currently on duty with Spain at the Confederations Cup but upon his return the two parties are set to resume talks with new technical director Franco Baldini leading the discussions as Spurs look to bring the impressive Spain international to the club.

Villa has struggled with injuries in recent years but he recovered well at the end of the season to make 16 appearances for club and country with the Confederations Cup Final to come against Italy on Sunday.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas is desperate to recruit at least two strikers this summer as he looks to mount a successful challenge to qualify for the Champions League and a forward in the capacity of Villa would be regarded as a massive coup for the club playing without Champions League football next season.

However there still seems work to be done to complete the transfer with personal terms still to be agreed while Barcelona want an initial £12 million which Spurs are reluctant to pay given the lack of sell-on value.

Will Spurs up the ante and pull off the impressive capture of David Villa this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
