Tottenham are said to be interested in resigning former winger Iago Falque, as they continue to search for their first singing of the Summer transfer window.
Falque joined Spurs from Juventus in 2012, but after making just 11 first team appearances over two years, he was subsequently sold to Genoa in 2014. The Spanish winger has since enjoyed a turnaround in fortunes after a string of successful seasons in Serie A with first Genoa, then Roma, and now Torino.
The 28-year-old scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions for Torino last season, which has caught the eye of Spurs. According to Tuttosport (via CalcioMercato), Torino are now bracing themselves for a potential bid from Spurs for the Spaniard.
This news coincides with the fact that Maurico Pochettino has recently claimed, as per the Daily Mail, that he was unsure whether Spurs were going to be able to make any signings before the end of the transfer window on the 9th of August.
“Last season I told you some numbers, but this season we don’t know.“I don’t know if we are going to sign or not. We’re working on that.
“I cannot tell you if we’re going to sign one, zero or two or three or four.
“It’s true that it’s so close, the transfer window is so close, but the club’s doing everything to help the team and add some players, more quality, and try to help us in the season to achieve what we want.”
Considering Tottenham's current wealth of attacking talents, Falque would certainly be an underwhelming signing. This is especially if Tottenham are not able to bring any other signings alongside him in the few days leading up to the end of this Summer's transfer window.
