Report: Udinese take Spurs' Dos Santos

It's widely reported Udinese have found the replacement for Alexis Sanchez – Tottenham's Giovani Dos Santos – worth €10m.

The Friulani wasted no time filling the boots left vacant by Sanchez's big money transfer to Barcelona.

Italian media suggest Mexican forward Giovani Dos Santos has been snapped up from Spurs for around €10m, which will see him become Udinese's most expensive signing under the Pozzo era.

The Mexican international has spent the last few seasons out on loan at Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and Racing Santander.

He'll be offered a five-year contract and is considered perfect for Francesco Guidolin's tactics, while he can also play down the right wing.

Dos Santos grew up in the Barcelona youth academy and joined Tottenham in 2008 for €6m plus performance-related bonuses.
