Their efforts have brought about Champions League qualification, for which the club are likely to have to delve into the transfer market to add depth to their squad, and reports claim that Vazquez is a target, with the Londoners readying an opening offer of around £10m plus add-ons.

The Argentine has emerged as one of the top playmakers in Serie A, notching a staggering 17 assists over the course of the last two league campaigns.

Spurs are thought to be keen to add his qualities to their ranks, but it’s understood that the Rosanero want around double the opening offer being pondered at White Hart Lane.

Manchester United are also thought to be in the running for Vazquez, with newly installed managed Jose Mourinho thought to have made him one of his summer targets ahead of his now sealed move to Old Trafford.
