Alberto Moreno could soon find himself joined at White Hart Lane by Sevilla team-mate and coveted Premier League target Federico Fazio.
Despite not making Albiceleste’s World Cup squad, the Argentina international has just ended the strongest campaign of his career, playing a major role in Los Palanganos claiming this season’s Europa League title by recording a clean sheet in the final against Benfica.
Measuring in at 6 foot 5 whilst averaging 3.2 interceptions and 4.4 successful aerial duels per match, the 27 year-old comes with a commanding, monolithic presence but equally offers comfort on the ball, being also capable of featuring in defensive midfield.
Tottenham could certainly do with some added quality at centre-back, with regular defensive capitulations becoming a recurring trend of the Lilywhites’ Premier League campaign.
Furthermore, with a release clause of just £8million, Fazio certainly strikes value for money. And interestingly enough, his commonest role in the Sevilla first team is at left centre-back, next to Moreno.
