Tottenham to ramp up interest in Serie A playmaker – report

Tottenham are set to step up their interest in Palermo playmaker Franco Vazquez this summer, say reports

Tottenham Hotspur are set to ramp up their interest in signing Palermo playmaker Franco Vazquez this summer, according to reports.

The 27-year-old is believed to be one of the north London club’s top transfer targets this summer as Mauricio Pochettino prepares his side for a return to the Champions League next season.

Vazquez scored eight goals for Palermo last season, notching up six assists for his team-mates.

Now, the Daily Mirror is reporting that Spurs will now have to ramp up their interest in bringing the midfielder to the Premier League if they want to secure his signature.

The same story goes on to say that both Fiorentina and AC Milan are keen to secure Vazquez’s signature but that the player himself would favour a move to the Premier League.
