Tottenham One Of Several Clubs Chasing Italian Wonderkid

Spurs, AC Milan and Roma chasing young defender.

Tottenham are among a number of clubs chasing Italian wonderkid Marco Perrotta, according to the player’s agent.

The defender, 18, impressed as Pescara earned promotion to the Serie A last season but his representative, Ulisse Savini, says a number of top Italian clubs are set to challenge the north Londoners for his signature.

Ulisse told tuttomercatoweb: “AS Roma, AC Milan and Tottenham on him? It’s true, but not only them, there are other clubs interested in the player.

“Right now he is looking forward to a season with Pescara in Serie A and he has a contract that ties him to the club until 2016.

“For the future we’ll see.”

Spurs have been linked with a number of new faces this summer but have so far only recruited Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is desperate to offload want-away midfielder Luka Modric and the Croatian’s move to Real Madrid should spark some late transfer activity at White Hart Lane.
