Giovani dos Santos is poised to end his disappointing spell at Tottenham Hotspur as Sevilla and Inter Milan jostle for his signature.
The Mexican international has spent most his tenure at White Hart Lane as a peripheral figure where he has made just 17 appearances in four years. The player’s lawyer has revealed that Tottenham are now willing to let the player go in a move that will benefit all parties involved.
"Spurs are looking to find a club which would make all three parties happy," Vincente Monte, dos Santos’s lawyer said, speaking to Spanish publication Estadio Deportivo.
"There are a number of teams interested. Teams from Italy and Spain are the closest [to sealing a deal]. Inter Milan are one of the interested clubs, and Sevilla are another."
Dos Santos arrived from Barcelona for £5.25 million in 2008, a move which was seen a major coup for Tottenham. Things have not gone to plan for the skillful playmaker in north London however, and the only occasions when the 23-year-old has truly shone in the past four years has been when on loan back in Spain with Racing Santander, and while on international duty with Mexico.
Estadio Deportivo also report that dos Santos may be more favourable to a move to Sevilla, should the club sign is younger brother, Jonathan dos Santos from Barcelona. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder is reportedly close to completing a move to the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, providing the Catalan giants can finalise a move for Arsenal’s Alex Song.
