Spurs Set To Offload Defensive Misfit

The Daily Mail report that Tottenham are keen on offloading centre-back Federico Fazio, just one year after he made his switch to North London from Sevilla.

Fazio signed for Spurs in August last year, and he has failed to make a huge impression on the first team following a couple of red cards in his first few months at the club.

The Argentine wasn’t included in the matchday squad in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on the opening day, The Mail now claiming that Spurs will listen to offers for the defender, with Lyon and West Brom interested in the 28-year-old.

It now seems that Fazio is no longer needed at White Hart Lane following the arrival of Kevin Wimmer and Toby Alderweireld in this summer transfer window adding to the existing Jan Vertonghen and Eric Dier at the heart of the Spurs defence.

Fazio appeared 31 times for Spurs last season, and wherever he moves, he will surely be looking for regular league action, which he currently isn’t getting at Tottenham.
