Tottenham chasing Wolfsburg midfielder Luiz Gustavo

Tottenham are eyeing Wolfsburg midfielder Luiz Gustavo.

The Daily Star says reports in Portugal claim the north London club want to add the Brazilian to help form a solid core at Spurs, something boss Andre Villas-Boas thinks has been lacking so far this season.

Gustavo turn down the chance to move to Arsenal during the summer after the prospect of little game-time at then club Bayern Munich forcing him to look elsewhere for first-team action.

Choosing Wolfsburg over the Gunners, the 26-year-old experienced a shaky start to the term but has since gone on to cement his place in the starting 11.

Villas-Boas hopes to convince Gustavo to make a switch in January with the promise of maximum game-time ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
