West Brom reportedly considering a move for Tottenham's Federico Fazio

Could West Bromwich Albion bring the Tottenham Hotspur centre-back to The Hawthorns?

According to a report from the Daily Star, West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis is considering a move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio.

The 28-year-old has a contract at White Hart Lane until the summer of 2018 but with Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer both arriving this summer Fazio may struggle for sufficient game-time.

Alderweireld and countryman Jan Vertonghen are likely to be the first-choice centre-back pairing when fit and available and with Wimmer and Eric Dier also on Tottenham’s books a bid for Fazio could tempt them into business.

The Argentine has divided opinion among Tottenham fans since he arrived in North London, and his 31 appearances last season contained a mixture of promising performances and disappointing contributions.

He certainly has the talent to succeed in the Premier League and West Brom could offer him the perfect chance to do just that either on loan or in a permanent deal, but it remains to be seen if Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino would sanction a move given the sheer number of games his side are likely to play this season.

West Brom are reportedly ready to sell Jonas Olsson and see Fazio as a good option to replace him at The Hawthorns.
