Franco Vazquez could be leaving Palermo this summer, after the club’s president, Maurizio Zamparini, confirmed to the Italian media that he is likely to sign for a Premier League cub, and that he has been in touch with Tottenham.
“It’s definitely more likely Vazquez will go to England – I’m asking for 25 million euros (£19.5m) for him,” Zamparini told Corriere dello Sport.
“I have lower offers, but for me he’s worth as much as (Domenico) Berardi. I can see him doing well anywhere. He’s underrated and I don’t know why.”
“Unfortunately he’s not one who talks much and he doesn’t have the kind of character to impose himself. I’m in touch with Tottenham and I’ve asked them for €25m, so let’s see.
“He could even do well with Leicester. Milan and Roma were interested, but if I see that Berardi is moving for €25m, then I would go for Vazquez.”
According to latest reports on Italian website News Icilia, West Bromwich Albion, in the last few hours, have also shown interest in signing the Italian international.
Earlier, the player also confirmed that he could be leaving this summer, if Palermo can reach an agreement with a club.
The 27-year-old has 8 goals and 6 assists to his name in 36 league appearances, and is tied to the Serie A club till 2019.
