Tottenham to replace Dawson with Argentine international

Fazio.jpgThe Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern could not be happier with how their season has started.

They currently have six points from two games and are yet to concede a goal and according to the Evening Standard, more squad reinforcements could still be made.

Reports suggest that the North London outfit are willing to meet the release clause of Sevilla captain and Argentine international Federico Fazio.

Despite not conceding a goal, Mauricio Pochettino is hoping to reinforce his backline with a new centre back after Michael Dawson agreed to move to Hull City.

Now, Sevilla sporting director Monchi has confirmed Spurs are on the brink of signing Fazio.

He said: “It seems that Tottenham is willing to pay the [release] clause.

“We are waiting to see the money in the Football League. We are not going to negotiate with anyone because our desire is to keep Fazio in Sevilla.

“Two months ago we talked about his renewal, but it was not possible. When an English team appears interested in one of our players it is difficult because they can multiply player salaries

“We tried to renew him since last season but the distances were huge even if we were hoping to make a new deal.”
