Spurs and Leicester tracking exciting in-form striker

pochettino9921It’s been a great season for Spurs and Leicester fans in the Transfer Tavern and things could get busy in the transfer window.

The Daily Express claims Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City have joined Juventus and Napoli in the race for striker Gianluca Lapadula, who plays for Pescara in Italy’s second tier.

The Italian has scored 21 league goals for his club who are currently 7th battling for a promotion Serie A, Italy’s top competition.

Spurs have been monitoring the 25-year-old for the majority of the season and are keen to bring him to London after being impressed by scout reports.

Leicester, Napoli and Juventus are all interested in the signature of Lapadula and a transfer war may be on the cards.

Daniele Sebastiani, president of Pescara, speaking to Itasportspress.it said:

“If we do not get promoted then he is likely to leave.”

“I have followed Juventus and Napoli’s interest closely, but we do not have an agreement in place with Juve. Moreover, the regulations of the transfer window are clear and up until May 16, nothing can be done.”
