Spurs prepare £20 million bid for La Liga ace and Bent could make-way

Tottenham are today preparing a £20 million move for Valencia striker David Villa after weeks of speculation over the players future. Villa has impressed whilst on international duty with Spain at the European Championships leading to intense speculation that he may move to the Premier League.

Spurs boss Juande Ramos is keen to bring the 26-year old to White Hart Lane this summer as he looks to strengthen his side this summer. It is thought Ramos will sell striker Darren Bent for £8 million in order to fund some of the money to sign Villa, who has been told by his club Valencia that he may leave, if their asking price is met.

I personally feel Spurs would be more than capable of challenging for the top four next season if they managed to sign Villa. He is a tremendous talent who I am sure every club in Europe would love to sign. I do however feel Villa may be more tempted by the likes of Chelsea or Liverpool if they were to come in for him.
