Tottenham Hotspur target Franco Vazquez has confirmed he plans to leave Palermo this summer, having also been linked with a move to Chelsea.

Palermo are expected to cash in on 24-year-old Vazquez this summer, with Spurs and Premier League champions Leicester City among those interested in his services, according to the Italian club's controversial president Maurizio Zamparini.

While Zamparini hopes the player will join a Premier League club, he added Spurs, or any other interested party, would be expected to pay £19.6m ($27.5m) for the Argentina-born Italy international.

Gazzetta dello Sport report that both Roma and AC Milan are keen to keep the player in Italy, while West Brom have already seen an approach turned down. But Vazquez could also have an offer from west London, after he was directly asked about the possibility of a move to Stamford Bridge.

"I will leave Palermo, my future will be 100% far away from Sicily," he was quoted as saying by Gazzetta Giallorossa. "I can confirm the words of the club president, I have no preference between Italy and the Premier League, I want to consider all offers. My agent is taking care of my future.

"I do know if my next team will be Tottenham or Chelsea. I just received an offer from West Brom that was rejected by Palermo."

Vazquez, who joined the Serie A club from Belgrano in 2012, scored eight goals and provided seven assists operating behind the striker during the 2015-16 season.

After their Premier League title challenge fell short last season, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to add more firepower to his squad to ease the burden on Harry Kane.

He confirmed in late April Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi was one player the club was considering this summer. However, recent reports would suggest Spurs have shifted their attentions to AZ Alkmaar's Vincent Janssen.

AZ expect to lose the 21-year-old Netherlands international this summer, with the club's sporting director Max Huiberts recently confirming to Voetbal International they are already considering replacements.
