Andre Villas-Boas has opened talks with Barcelona striker David Villa. Villa-Boas is desperate to sign Villa, and is hoping his personal relationship will help win the battle to snatch the Spain international.

Spurs had reignited their interest in want-away Villa, who will be allowed to leave Barca in search of more regular football in what is a World Cup year.

The 31-year-old has also been targeted by Arsenal and Liverpool in the past, but Spurs are hoping to persuade him to come to White Hart Lane – even though they did not qualify for the Champions League.

Barcelona will give the green light to a deal if anyone matches their £12m valuation and are allowing him to negotiate a move.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is prepared to bankroll the club’s pursuit of Champions League next football by signing TWO big-name strikers this summer.

They tried for Leandro Damiao in January, but could not get the Brazil international out of his club, Internacional.

Tottenham have gone back for Damiao, and he and Villa are their first choice to spearhead a rebuilding programme this summer.

They are also keeping tabs on Valencia’s Roberto Soldado and Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic, in case they miss out on other targets.

Juventus would want around £12m for 29-year-old Vucinic, but his age would count against him as Villas-Boas has already had a big battle to convince Levy over Villa.
