Tottenham Hotspur are securing the services of Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to Italian publication Tutto Mercato Web.
The Argentine international has one year left on his contract and there have been no talks of extending his current deal. He has also seen his first team appearances reduced as he started in only 19 league games this term.
Lavezzi wants to leave PSG and has now set his sights on joining the north London club in the summer transfer window. He will join Tottenham in a four-year deal after agreeing to it in principle with the Premier League outfit.
Mauricio Pochettino's side and the Ligue 1 winners now have to agree a fee in order to complete a transfer in bringing the forward to White Hart Lane.
The PSG star has long been linked with a move to Liverpool as Anfield legend Phil Thompson also advised Brendan Rodgers to sign Lavezzi. However, the Merseyside club have lost the race after the forward agreed to join Tottenham.
PSG are looking to part ways with their player in the summer transfer window. Their former manager Luis Fernandez has already confirmed Lavezzi will not be at Parc des Princes next season.
"Last year was remarkable, with a real domination. This season, it must be cut into two parts. The order was given by Laurent Blanc. A project is in place. PSG have recovered to play. The problem is that in comparison with last season, the team was stronger, easier," Fernandez said, as quoted by Le10Sport.
"Especially as training, is not there. And then, there will be departures: [Yohan] Cabaye, Lucas Digne , Gregory Van der Wiel and Lavezzi will leave," the former PSG manager said.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado are set for a summer exit and that leaves Harry Kane as the only first choice striker in the squad. The former Southampton manager needs to bolster his attacking division and the arrival of Lavezzi will only strengthen the squad.
