Tottenham forward Giovani dos Santos is close to securing a switch to Serie A side Genoa, according to talkSPORT.

The Mexico international has been a non-entity at White Hart Lane since signing for the club for £4.7m from Barcelona and has been shipped out on loan to Ipswich Town and Galatasary.

An impressive World Cup campaign failed to see the forward re-establish himself in Harry Redknapp's side, making just three appearances this term.

Interest from homeland team Chivas de Guadalajara, as well as Lazio and Fiorentina was touted but sounds from Italy indicate that Dos Santos is in advanced talks with Italian side Genoa over a January move.
