Tottenham AVB keen on Barcelona Villa

Tottenham AVB keen on Barcelona Villa

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expressed he is a big fan of David Villa abilities, after the speculations linked the Spurs with a move for 31-year-old.

According to the recent transfer rumours Tottenham are looking to sign Barcelona forward in a bid to add sharpness up front. However Villas-Boas admitted the priority number one for his side is Champions league qualification.

Asked about Villa, AVB said: “He is one of the world’s best strikers. What comes out of speculation at this time at Tottenham is very surreal because you know the club is very active in the last weeks of the transfer window, so you can see that speculation is growing - but at the moment we are focused on trying to get fourth spot.

The Portuguese revealed he expects Newcastle to deliver a fight against Arsenal, as the Gunners could outstrip the Spurs and secure the top-four finish by outplaying the Magpies. He said: “In the last game of the season anything can happen so I would expect them (Newcastle) to do their job properly. Obviously their objectives have been achieved but everyone wants to finish the season on a high and I think it will be a competitive game.”

AVB also admitted he would like his main star Gareth Bale to remain at the club for one more season, stating: “Our interest is for the player to continue here but we have made it very clear that whatever happens the idea is for the player to be with us next season.”
