Tottenham have made a move to sign Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah on a free transfer this summer, according to a report.
Italian transfer site Calcio Mercato claim that Spurs have made a firm approach for the Ghana international, who has decided to quit the Italian champions at the end of the season.
It is said there is firm interest in Asamoah, 29, in recent days from Everton and Inter Milan.
Calcio Mercato report that Tottenham have asked for information about Asamoah’s situation, while Inter have already tabled a three-year contract offer to the player.
Asamoha joined Juventus in the summer of 2012 from Udinese and has made 151 appearances for the club.
Football Insider verdict:
What a signing Asamoah would be. He is a serial winner who is energetic, classy and versatile – he can operate wide in midfield, as a wing-back or as an attacking central midfielder. The left-footed 69-times Ghana international has spent nearly his entire career in Serie A but his physical playing style is ideally suited to the Premier League. Asamoah’s imminent free agent status gives him plenty of options and Spurs will need to be persuasive, and act quick, to seal a deal.
