Franco Vazquez wants Premier League move amid reported Tottenham interest

Stadio Renzo Barbera

Palermo midfielder Franco Vazquez is eyeing a move to the Premier League.

Palermo playmaker Franco Vazquez has told Canal Plus that he would be interested in a move to the Premier League, with quotes reported by Tutto Mercato Web.

The 26-year-old may have been overshadowed by team-mate Paulo Dybala this season, but Vazquez has also enjoyed a strong campaign, racking up seven goals and nine assists in Serie A.

Whilst he was born in Argentina and started his career there with Belgrano, Vazquez has switched his international allegiance to play for Italy, and earned his first cap against England last month.

After such an impressive campaign, it's only natural that transfer speculation would begin to surround the playmaker - and that's exactly the case with Vazquez.

Tutto Mercato Web recently reported that Tottenham Hotspur were interested in bringing Vazquez to the Premier League, with Mauricio Pochettino looking to improve his squad this summer.

Now, with quotes reported by Tutto Mercato Web, Vazquez has told Canal Plus that he would be interested in a move to England in the future, whilst Spain would also be an option having spent time on loan with Rayo Vallecano in 2012.

If Pochettino is indeed interested in signing Vazquez this summer, those comments may be of interest to him, with Vazquez admitting that a Premier League move would be 'nice'.

Signing an attacking midfielder may not be high on Pochettino's transfer wish list this summer given the performances of Christian Eriksen and the return of Brentford loan star Alex Pritchard - but if Vazquez is available, that situation could change.
