Palermo forward Franco Vazquez has given his clearest indication he is happy to move on from Palermo this summer if he is told to do so.

Vazquez, 27, has been described by SkySports as a target for Tottenham Hotspur, with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini confirmed he has been in touch with the Premier League side.

He said: "I'm in touch with Tottenham and I've asked them for 25 million euros, so let's see."

Vazquez has given his own response when asked over his future, and while he basically has said he will do what his club tells him to, he does not exactly sound like he would be unhappy to move on.

He told Italian radio station Radio Next 97.1 reported by Tuttomercatoweb: "I have not anything about my future, but when there will be an agreement between him [Zamparini] and another club I'll just catch a plane and go to sign.

"The President does the price. If he does not accept it, then I will stay at Palermo, I have a contract until 2019. I do not think that will happen, however."

The manner in which Zamparini has been touting Vazquez around also indicates a move is likely, and this could be a good time to cash in on the 27-year-old.

Vazquez plays on the right wing, although can also play up front, and scored eight goals and provided seven assists last season.

Tottenham have alternative options, with The Mail reporting this week that they are keen on Dutch international Quincy Promes.

The winger is younger than Vazquez at 24, and struck 18 goals in the Russian Premier League for Spartak Moscow. If he is available at a cheaper price than Palermo's Italian attacker then the Serie A side may find Tottenham unwilling to bite on their offer.
