Bolton are set to make a £4 million bid for out-of-favour Tottenham midfielder Giovani dos Santos, according to the Mirror.

Owen Coyle has £7m to invest from Gary Cahill’s imminent transfer to Chelsea and, in addition to American defender Tim Ream, has identified a winger as a top priority as he looks to preserve the club’s top flight status.

Coyle is believed to be a long-time admirer of Dos Santos, who arrived at White Hart Lane from Barcelona in 2008 but has failed to break into the starting lineup.

Bolton have also been strongly linked with a move for Blackburn winger Junior Hoilett, but Spurs boss Harry Redknapp’s willingness to sell Dos Santos at a fairly reasonable price means the Mexican is the likelier target.
