Mexican International Giovanni Dos Santos has set his sights on playing in the Champions League next season with his new club Tottenham Hotspur after his transfer from La Liga giants FC Barcelona in the summer.
Spurs have had two 5th placed finishes in the Premiership in the past three seasons, but will have been disappointed with the 11th placed finish last term, despite winning the Carling Cup against Chelsea.
19-year-old Dos Santos, who arrived at White Hart Lane for an initial £4.7million fee from Barca, says the North London club must break into the top four this season.
“We have to try and get one of those top four spots, because we want to play Champions League football,” he told FourFourTwo magazine.
Playmaker Dos Santos believes that Juande Ramos’ team have all the elements in place to challenge for a top four finish, with the addition’s of Roman Pavlyuchenko, David Bentley and Luka Modric to Spurs reflecting the Mexican’s own ambitions.
“'I joined a club that is working for this and I know we have the qualities to challenge the top four,” he added.
“I missed out on winning a trophy last season so I'd really like to win something this season with my new team.”
