Tottenham fans enjoying a pint in the Tavern after their last gasp draw with Leicester in the FA Cup will be anything but upset with the latest news, which suggest a flop signing of theirs will be offloaded.
The Argentine has not played in a single Premier League game so far this season and has featured just once for Spurs when he started in a 2-1 defeat to rivals Arsenal in the Capital One Cup.
Spurs signed Fazio from Sevilla for an estimated £8million back in 2014, but the Daily Mirror claim that the 28-year old is in advanced talks with his former club with the hope of making a return to Spain.
Fazio’s imminent departure could put a halt to negotiations on Kevin Wimmer’s proposed loan move away from White Hart Lane, with Mauricio Pochettino wanting to keep him at the club as a backup option with the club hoping to go on a decent run in the Europe League, as well as looking to achieve a top four finish.
Our landlord believes that this is a crucial piece of business for Spurs to complete, stating that offloading deadwood is just as important as signing top-class players in the race for Champions League football.
Spurs fans, who would you look to sign to replace Fazio? Let us know in the comments below!
