Franco Vazquez is being targeted by Tottenham

West Brom have registered their interest in signing Tottenham target Franco Vazquez, according to a report.

The 27-year-old Palermo forward has caught the attention of several Premier League clubs this summer, while there is also competition from Napoli.

Italian publication Tuttomercatoweb, cited by Sport Witness, claim that West Brom are giving serious consideration to a transfer for Vazquez.

Spurs are  also looking to bolster their attacking unit as they set about competing for the Premier League crown again next season and Football Insider reported last month that Vazquez could be on his way to White Hart Lane.

The striker impressed in Serie A last season, with eight goals and six assists in his 36 appearances.

The player has been with current club Palermo since 2012 and in that time has racked up over 100 appearances. He was rewarded by newly appointed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte for his performances in Serie A, when he was called up to the Italian national side in 2015.

Vazquez picked up the accolade for Serie A top assist provider during the 2014-15 season to enhance his reputation across Europe.

Prior to his Italian domestic career, he started out in the top tier of Argentinian football with Belgrano making just shy of 100 appearances for them.

West Brom may now be in pole position to land Vazquez with Tottenham’s attention seemingly focused on the capture of AZ’s Vincent Janssen.

Football Insider have revealed that Spurs are in advanced talks to sign Janssen for £16.5million.
