Tottenham and Barcelona have entered negotiations regarding the signing of David Villa according to reports.

Spain's all-time leading scorer is being lined up by Spurs who are prepared to pay around £10million for his services but the Catalan giants wants £12m.

The Daily Mail suggests that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is not keen to go any higher than £10m but is determined to lower Barca's asking price with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas determined to strengthen his thin strike force this summer.
