Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Simone Zaza according to gianlucadimarzio.com.

Tottenham could use an extra attacking player in the current transfer window to ease the pressure on Harry Kane and Zaza is the latest attacking start to be linked with a move to White Hart Lane.

Here are five facts about him.

He’s a 23-year-old Italian forward who plays for Sassuolo in Serie A.

He has four international caps for the Italian senior side.

His international career has seen him play for Italy at four different levels.

He represented six different clubs before he joined Sassuolo in 2013.

His best career spell so far came in 2012-2013 where he bagged 18 goals in 35 appearances for Ascoli.

His contract with Sassuolo doesn’t expire until the summer of 2019 according to transfermarkt, so if the report of Tottenham’s interest is accurate, Spurs will more than likely have to pay a good fee to get their hands on the player.
