18 goals, 17 assists in last two seasons; Spurs reportedly want Palermo's Franco Vazquez

Tottenham are reportedly pushing to sign Palermo star Franco Vazquez.

According to The Mirror, Tottenham are looking to snap up Palermo playmaker Franco Vazquez as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the Champions League.

Whilst Spurs enjoyed an impressive season under Mauricio Pochettino, they must add new signings this summer to not only challenge in the Premier League next season, but also be competitive in the Champions League again.

Fans are keen to see the centre of midfield strengthened, whilst Pochettino must add more creativity in the final third as well as another goalscorer to take some pressure off Harry Kane.

Now, The Mirror report that Spurs are looking to bring in Palermo star Franco Vazquez, who is allegedly fed up at the Italian side.

Vazquez, 27, was born in Argentina but represents Italy at international level, with two caps to his name having impressed with Palermo last season.

The attacking midfielder hit ten goals and ten assists last term, whilst he's added another eight goals and seven assists this term despite Palermo struggling at the wrong end of the Serie A table.

Now though, it's claimed that Vazquez has had enough and wants to play European football, promoting Spurs into making a move to land him ahead of their return to the Champions League, and 'sources close to the player' claim that Tottenham are very keen on Vazquez.

A skilful left-footed playmaker who thrives as a No. 10, Vazquez could provide competition for Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in Spurs' attacking midfield roles - something Pochettino needs to look at adding this summer.
