Bolton want Giovani Dos Santos from Tottenham

Coyle ready to use Cahill cash to hand Dos Santos an escape route from Spurs

Bolton are hoping to use the funds from the sale of Gary Cahill to end finally Giovani dos Santos's stay at Tottenham.

The Mexico winger has failed to nail down a regular spot in the Spurs team since joining from Barcelona in 2008 but has not been able to find a way out of White Hart Lane.

Sevilla are rivalling the Trotters
for his signature but have fallen short with a 3.4million bid for the
22-year-old forward, according to the Mirror.

But Bolton will have 7m to spend once
Cahill's move to Chelsea is completed, although they are poised to use
some of that on American defender Tim Ream.

Boss Owen Coyle is a long-term admirer of Dos Santos, having tried to sign him on loan while at Burnley.

A move, however, may be complicated by Spurs' 8m valuation of the player.
