The president of the Serie A outfit Palermo has claimed that Spurs are in negotiations to sign Franco Vazquez.
Vazquez has been linked with a move to Tottenham in recent weeks and now the Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has confirmed that talks between the clubs have begun, with a price being set for the Italian international.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Zamprini said: “I’m in contact with Tottenham for Vazquez and I requested £19.5m for him.
“I received some lower offers for Vazquez but he’s worth as much as Dominico Berardi.”
Berardi – also linked to Spurs – looks set to make a move from Sassuolo to Juventus for a rumoured fee of £16m, so there could be room for Tottenham to negotiate with Zamprini given his comparison.
Vazquez has scored 18 goals over the last two seasons and has established himself as one of the top playmakers in Italy. Is he worth paying Palermo’s valuation for? Watch him in action below and let us know your verdict below.
