"I'm in contact with Tottenham for Vazquez"


I'm in contact with Tottenham for Vazquez

Palermo club president Maurizio Zamparini has revealed to Sky Sports that talks are ongoing for the transfer of Franco Vazquez to Tottenham.

"I'm in contact with Tottenham for Vazquez and I requested €25 million for him. I received some lower offers for Vazquez but he's worth as much as Berardi. He'd be great wherever, I don't know why he’s so underrated.  "He’d be good at Leicester, Milan and Roma made were interested but if I see Berardi going for 25 million then I'd take Vazquez."

Bureau de Change: €25m - £19.47m - AUS$38.15m - US$28.37

The 27-year-old (28 nxt February) Italian international playmaker  made his international debut against England in March 2015. He has made it clear he is going to leave Palermo this summer and wants a new challenge.

While members of the Italian press have questioned whether he could cope with the Premier League, Mauricio Pochettino seems to disagree. Palermo will want a hefty fee soa deal is not guaranteed. He may be an Italian international but he was brought up in Argentina so he'll have plenty in common with Erik Lamela.

Vazquez is a left-footed attacking midfielder with good vision. He isn't particularly quick but is a good passer of the ball with a strong technique. In 2014/15 he was joint top of the assists league in Serie A with 10.

He has the ability to play in a variety of positions apart from the central attacking role. He can turn his hand to a deeper lying playmaker role, a secondary striker and a winger. The Italians have compared him to Javier Pastore, Alessandro Del Piero, and Roberto Baggio.

  1. I want this guy. Ive been banging on for years that we need a central creator to make this system work at maximum effectiveness.
    Think Vasquez is still a bit rough around the edges (sometimes tries to take on players when a pass would be better but that is something that happens when a good player doesnt have so much faith in the players around him) I think poch could bring the best out of him by surroubding him with better players than hes ever played with (can do that without even changing our syarting 11).
    I do think however that we need to go all out and get ANTE CORIC aswell though as Coric looks to be of a similar level at a much younger age. This is a rare opportunity to sign 2 very good number 10s for less than the price of one. If we were to let coric go to any of West Ham, Liverpool, Man U etc we would be regretting it for years to come.
