When Giovani Dos Santos’ proposed move to Sevilla was blocked by Spurs this summer, the Mexican was anticipating more game time at the Lane as a result.
However, we are now half way towards another transfer window and that hope has yet to materialise. At the time, Gio said,
“After such a long time without having any confidence in me I am now going to get my chance, which makes me feel weird.
“Even so, I mean to take this opportunity out of respect to the Tottenham fans and also because of the professional I am.”
As we approach the end of October, the player has been restricted to sub appearances in the Premiership while we have seen fleeting glimpses of his elusive talent in the Europa League. However, if he is put up for sale again in January, it seems that Sevilla may no longer be interested.
“We have neither the availability nor the intention of paying what is required by Tottenham,” said the club’s President Jose Maria del Nido.
“Giovani is not worth €11m and it is impossible to see him arriving.
“We offered more than €4.5m plus €500,000 in bonuses, more than his market value. Now he is worth even less.”
It seems that while Dos Santos stays on the White Hart Lane bench, his career is more in limbo than ever.
