Franco Vazquez in action for Palermo
Palermo sporting director Rino Foschi says the departure of reported Tottenham Hotspur, West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace target Franco Vazquez is "almost at the finish line", ESPN reports.
The Italian side's president Maurizio Zamparini confirmed discussions with Spurs last month (Di Marzio), while West Brom (Birmingham Mail) and Palace (Talksport) are said to have lodged bids this summer.
However, playmaker Vazquez, who scored eight goals and made a further seven last season, appears bound for Europa League winners Sevilla, according to Foschi.
"Vazquez is going no matter what," he said, as quoted by ESPN. "We're almost at the finish line with Sevilla because we just need to work out his bonuses.

"Their sporting director, from what I understand, wants both Vazquez and [Sampdoria's Joaquin] Correa.
"I hope the operation will go through as soon as possible."
Palermo, who narrowly avoided relegation from Serie A last season, were said to have slapped a €25 million (£21.4 million) valuation on Vazquez, a two-cap Italian international.
However, ESPN reports that Sevilla have since had an inferior offer accepted after the player stated a desire to leave.
The Spanish side, who recently hired ex-Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli to replace Unai Emery, are looking to replace Ever Banega, who left for Inter Milan this month.
