Lavezzi

An update on Ezequiel Lavezzi to Tottenham Hotspur negotiations.

Ezequiel Lavezzi has reportedly chosen Tottenham Hotspur as his next club, claim Italian website Tuttomercatoweb.

Following up their exclusive from Tuesday morning that Spurs were interested in the Argentine, the outlet reports that Lavezzi has agreed a deal in principle to join the club.

Tottenham and PSG are yet to come to an agreement however, and a deal is far from done.

The report states: "(The) PSG striker has reached an agreement in principle with Tottenham for the next four seasons. It remains to find the agreement between clubs, while Lavezzi looks away from Paris and seems to have chosen his next destination."

Lavezzi has just turned 30 and a four-year deal would be a substantial one, but the attacker is one who arrives with substantial experience.

He is a three-time title winner in France with PSG, playing previously for Italian side Napoli.

The attacker also holds an Italian passport and would not require a work permit, but would be eligible in any case given he is a regular international with Argentina, featuring at last year's World Cup.

Lavezzi has one year left on his PSG contract, and scored nine goals, providing eight assists in 2014/15.
