Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling anxious as talkSPORT revealed that their target Simone Zaza admitted that there has been no contact with Spurs as Juventus show their interest.
The Sassuolo forward has been on Tottenham’s books for a while now but they may risk losing him to Juventus as they are yet to make their move.
In January, Tottenham went to end their pursuit for the striker and land their man but a move never materialised.
Zaza’s agent, Christian Maifredi, insists there has been no contact from any other clubs over his long term future but reminds them that his client is open to a move.
Maifredi said: “It’s too early to talk about the future.
“Juventus are in the middle of their League campaign as well as other objectives, and with Sassuolo yet to attain safety they’re hardly thinking about the transfer market.
“Tottenham? No one called me, I don’t know if Sassuolo had contacts. Being a striker for the national team was good for him, no doubt, but he’s only thinking about Sassuolo.”
Punters in the Transfer Tavern have the opinion that if Tottenham really want their man, then it is imperative that they come in before Juventus.
Zaza may feel more comfortable to stay in Serie A considering he is only 23-years-old, but a move to the Premier League could be a dream move for the ace.
Tottenham fans. Do you think that if Juventus come in first they will beat you to his signature? Let us know your thoughts below.
