PSG reportedly desperate to sell alleged Tottenham target Ezequiel Lavezzi

A player recently linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly surplus to requirements at his current club.

Earlier this month, Italian website TMW claimed Paris Saint-Germain winger Ezequiel Lavezzi had agreed a deal in principle to sign for Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The report claimed the Argentine international had agreed a four-year deal in principle but that an agreement between the two clubs was far from done, which makes the latest story from Le10 Sport particularly interesting.

The report claims PSG are desperate to part company with Lavezzi this summer and will do everything they can to sell him, but that the player is in no rush to leave as he could remain for one more season before negotiating a lucrative free transfer in 12 months.

If the French side really are that desperate to sell Lavezzi, Tottenham’s alleged agreement with the player means they are unlikely to play hard-ball over a transfer fee, provided of course Spurs do not offer a fee deemed derisory.

At 30, Lavezzi is not the best option for Tottenham, who are in need of additional wide players to strengthen their side.

With just nine goals and nine assists in 47 appearances for PSG this season, Lavezzi may not be the answer for either club, which begs the question: Do Tottenham really have an agreement for a player who would be a big risk despite his undeniable talent?
