Report: Tottenham could rival Inter Milan for Jesus Vazquez
Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Valencia left-back Jesus Vazquez, with Spurs battling Inter Milan for the teenager, according to a report from Inter Live.
Spurs appear to be fairly well-stocked on the left-hand side of the defence. Fabio Paratici signed both Ivan Perisic and Destiny Udogie in the summer. Meanwhile, Ryan Sessegnon is well on his way to enjoying his best campaign yet for Tottenham.
Nevertheless, it appears that Antonio Conte may want to strengthen further.
Tottenham keen on Jesus Vazquez
According to a report from Inter Live, Tottenham are admirers of Vazquez and could rival the Nerazzurri for the Valencia starlet.
It is not clear how much Los Che would want for the 19-year-old. But a report from El Desmarque recently noted the youngster has a release clause in his contract worth £35 million.
Interestingly, that report from El Desmarque added that Vazquez has a clause in his contract which would allow him to leave on loan in January if he does not play a certain number of games for Gennaro Gattuso’s side. And he has only featured in four La Liga games this term.
In truth, it would be a surprise to see Tottenham sign another young left wing-back anytime soon.
Sessegnon and Perisic have performed well this season. And Perisic’s World Cup performances highlight that he is a long way from being down at the highest level.
Antonio Conte also has Udogie to introduce into the fold next season. He is currently back on loan at Udinese following his switch in the summer.
Vazquez can play on the opposite flank. And you can never rule out Conte finding a completely different position for a player.
But unless Spurs sense they could be getting a bargain, it’s hard to imagine a move to North London happening.
