Tottenham are making a surprise move for Barcelona striker David Villa.Cadena SER says Villa is set to move to London this summer, though his destination will be Spurs and not long-term suitors Arsenal.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has held direct talks with Villa and convinced him about their ambitions. The prospect of playing with Gareth Bale also excites El Guaje.

The striker has endured a difficult campaign this season at Barca, having clashed with star man Lionel Messi and losing his first-choice status.
