Spurs target Kvaratskhelia has been one of the best in Serie A - Romano

Fabrizio Romano has told Que Golazo that Tottenham Hotspur summer target Khvicha Kvaratskhelia reminds him of Kaka, while he insisted that the 21-year-old has been one of the two best players in Serie A this season.

Luciano Spalletti’s men are the surprise early pace-setters in Italy this term. They sit top of the table having won four of their opening six games. Meanwhile, they also thrashed Liverpool in their Champions League opener.

Of course, Spurs fans have reason to keep an eye on Napoli this season. The two clubs agreed a loan deal for Tanguy Ndombele in the summer.

But there is absolutely no question that the Frenchman is being completely outshone by Kvaratskhelia in the early stages of the campaign.

The 21-year-old has four goals and two assists in the opening seven games. He recently bagged the winner in the 2-1 win over Lazio.

His form may actually be a little difficult for the Tottenham hierarchy to watch. It was reported ahead of the summer that Spurs were extremely interested in the Georgia international.

Obviously, no move took place with Kvaratskhelia heading to Naples. And Romano has outlined just how impressive a piece of business it was for the club to land him for just £8.7 million.

“He’s something incredible. He’s having an incredible impact, not just in the Champions League in the game with Liverpool, but every single game they’ve had in Serie A until now has been fantastic. This guy reminds me of Ricardo Kaka,” he told Que Golazo.

“I think his value, as of today, is already around €40, €50 million. And it could rise to 60, 70 in the next months if he continues like this.

“But I think Kvaratskhelia and Leao are the two best players in Serie A right now. And what Kvaratskhelia is doing is really something special.”

Of course, Tottenham may feel that they could have hardly done more to sign the youngster while he was available. But they must surely be wondering what must have been.

He is off to an amazing start. And Napoli have done some brilliant business. So the side has the potential to really grow in the coming years.

Certainly, as Romano notes, there is absolutely no chance of Kvaratskhelia being available for anything like £10 million after the start he has made.
