Could he be the perfect replacement for Gareth Bale at Tottenham?

Javier PastoreJavier Pastore is a diminutive attacking midfielder who is no stranger to the spotlight – should Tottenham wish to pursue him in the event of a Gareth Bale exit.

He made his break at Italian club Palermo in the same setup as Edinson Cavani who he has just been reunited with at Paris Saint Germain, and he’s never looked back since.

The playmaker nicknamed ‘El Flaco’ can sit behind the striker causing all sorts of havoc for opposition defences.

Pastore can create and score himself with 14 Serie A and currently 17 Ligue 1 goals to his name.  At 6ft 2 inches he has a commanding aura to his play which has earnt him 13 international caps for Argentina and as he approaches the peak years of his career at 24 years of age he could be set to light up the international stage.

It was only two short years ago that he was one of the world’s most in-demand players as he transferred to current French champions Paris Saint Germain in a deal worth £36million. This would mean that he is likely burn a significant hole in any club’s pocket should they try and prise him away from the Parc des Princes. If he can be persuaded to move though he would be an exciting prospect any top European club could be proud of.
