There are many ‘forgotten men’ in the ranks at White Hart Lane and when you compile a list of players who could be up for transfer, it’s easy to omit some of our fringe squad.
Giovani dos Santos fits into that category perfectly but his performance for Mexico against New Zealand may have put him firmly in the shop window once again. Gio scored twice inside the first 30 minutes on Wednesday night and in the absence of Javier Hernandez, was the stand out player in the South American side.
A brilliant performance has been lauded by the US press – the game having been played over there – and this highlights what a frustrating player he can be at times.
Dos Santos himself has said that he has enjoyed his time in Spain and would like to stay at Racing Santander if possible and while the Spanish club have been a little silent, Gio’s international goals may have reminded them to get out the cheque book.
