One year after Spurs exit, Iago Falque could be set for Roma

The Genoa winger has been in scintillating form since completing a move back to Italy.

Daniel Levy and Franco Baldini must be wondering if they made a big mistake last summer when they sold Iago Falque to Genoa.

The winger is reportedly set for a high profile move to Serie A runners-up Roma in the near future, according to Sport Mediaset, for a princely sum of around £10.7 million.

The Tottenham supremos sold the Spanish forward Falque after a rather disappointing spell in North London where he made just one appearance.

The former Barcelona graduate had taken in a series of loan spells, and begun to slowly impress in Spain while at Almeria and Rayo Vallecano, before Mauricio Pochettino took over last summer.

There was a hope that the arrival of the Argentinian could see Falque given a final chance to show what he could do at White Hart Lane, but the 25-year-old was sold to Genoa before the season began for a paltry £1.4 million according to Transfermarkt.

But in his debut campaign with the Red-Blues, Falque was a vital member of a side that surprised everyone by finishing in 6th spot in the league. The winger scored a superb 13 goals in 32 league matches, which certainly made Spurs look like they missed a trick with the player.
