Spurs ready to beat Arsenal to Serie A striker

pochettino9Tottenham Hotspur fans are feeling intrigued by a report circulating in the Transfer Tavern today as they are rumoured to be close completing the signing of a Serie A target.

Reports from the Metro reveal that Spurs are finally ready to sign Serie A frontman, Simone Zaza, who is currently playing for Juventus.

The Italian forward joined Juventus from Sassuolo at the end of last season but has failed to impress so far, making only two Serie A appearances so far this campaign.

It is understood that Spurs attempted to sign Zaza during the close of the summer transfer window and although they just missed out then, Spurs remained interested and will be keen to give it another go with January just around the window.

There were reports suggesting that North London rivals Arsenal also made an attempt to sign the 24-year-old Italian but Juve were determined not to let him go.

The report also claims fellow Premier League sides, West Ham and Watford, are also keen on the striker, who could miss Euro 2016 with Italy if he fails to get regular playing time.

Now that Zaza’s services aren’t a necessity to the struggling Italian giants, they may be eager to part ways with him, Spurs being the front-runners to secure his signature.

Spurs fans, is this a signing that excites you? Let us know in the comments below!
