A player that Tottenham Hotspur have recently been linked with has been earning plaudits in his home country and receiving widespread praise on Twitter.
According to the report, Tottenham are keeping tabs on the 22-year-old, along with Fiorentina's Serie A rivals Inter Milan and Juventus, plus Bundesliga table-toppers RB Leipzig.
The report claims that it will take as much as £43million to prise the player away from the Florence-based side, currently 13th in the Italian top flight.
While Castrovilli may not be a name familiar with many English football fans, he has been making waves in Italy, where fan consensus suggests he is one of the brightest up-and-coming stars on the peninsula.

Castrovilli's journey in football began with hometown club Minervino before joining Bari, coming through the ranks and making his breakthrough with the Apulian side.
In 2017 he was snapped up by Fiorentina and was loaned out to Cremonese, where he plied his trade for two years, while this season he has been turning out for the Viola in Serie A.
