Palermo have confirmed that a 35million euro deal has been agreed with Tottenham Hotspur which will see Denmark defender Simon Kjaer and Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani head to White Hart Lane.
President Maurizio Zamparini has revealed that Spurs have won the race to snap up the highly-rated duo, who had been linked with a number of clubs across Europe.
Twenty-one-year-old Kjaer is a rumoured target for several other clubs in England, as well as Bayern Munich and Juventus, while German club Wolfsburg had been linked with an interest in Cavani, 23.
However, Zamparini told Sky Italia:“Tottenham have bid 35million euros, an offer we cannot refuse, seeing as the two players have both said they want to leave.
“We will reinvest the money for these players. The midfield is my biggest concern, whereas in defence and attack we are fairly covered.”
