Barca striker "I will be playing at Spurs next season"

Barcelona striker Giovanni Dos Santos has today stated that he will be playing at Tottenham next season after weeks of speculation over his future. The Mexican international is supposedly close to joining Spurs in a deal that could cost the London club as much as £11 million. (Press Association)

The 19-year old has been dubbed by many as the next Ronaldinho and despite not playing as well as he might of last season he is still regarded by many as one of the world's most exciting emerging talents. Juande Ramos is keen to build a squad capable of challenging for the top four next season and he sees Dos Santos as a vital part of his team.

I personally can't wait to see Dos Santos in the Premier League. He is a very exciting prospect and I have no doubt he will turn out to be a bargain at £11 million. I think Spurs have a terrific chance of challenging for the top four with some of their new signings like Luka Modric and Dos Santos.
