Tottenham in talks with Serie A side to sign midfielder – report
Tottenham are in talks with Palermo to sign midfielder Franco Vazquez, say reports
Tottenham are officially in talks with Palermo over the proposed transfer of Franco Vazquez this summer, according to reports.
Spurs are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mauricio Pochettino prepares his side for a return to the Champions League next season.
The Argentina-born midfielder has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane in recent days as Pochettino looks to bolster his squad.
Now, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that he has been in contact with the north London club about the potential sale of Vazquez this summer.
Zamparini is quoted as saying by Metro: “I am in contact with Tottenham Hotspur for Franco Vazquez and I requested €25m for him.
“I received some lower offers for Vazquez but he is worth as much as Domenico Berardi.
“Franco Vazquez would be great wherever, he is so underrated and I do not know why.”
The 27-year-old midfielder scored eight goals and notched up seven assists in his 36 Serie A appearances for Palermo last season.
Spurs ended up third in the Premier League table last season after they were pipped by local rivals Arsenal on the final day of the campaign.
