Skysports.com understands that Wigan Athletic are eyeing a move for Tottenham Hotspur's out-of-favour midfielder Giovani dos Santos.

The Latics are searching the market for a winger to reinforce their squad for the 2011/12 campaign and have earmarked the Mexico international as a potential recruit.

Wigan were initially interested in Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips and Vladimir Weiss, but while Queens Park Rangers are favourites to sign the former, the latter has already joined Espanyol on a season-long loan.

Manager Roberto Martinez has now turned his attention to Dos Santos, who is way down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

The 22-year-old moved to Spurs from Spanish and European champions Barcelona in 2008 but has failed to find his feet in London, going out on loan to Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and Racing Santander since 2009.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp does not appear to have Dos Santos in his plans for this season, which Wigan are looking to capitalise upon.
