Tottenham are reportedly set to complete a deal to sign Sevilla defender Federico Fazio according to Estadio Deportivo.

By all accounts White Hart Lane boss Mauricio Pochettino will snap up his fellow Argentine in a £8m deal, the fee needed to trigger the 27 year old’s release clause, with the deal set to be announced tomorrow.

Pochettino appears keen to freshen up the defensive options he inherited from previous managers Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood, having already brought in Swansea City pair Michel Vorm and Ben Davies as well as young English centre-back Eric Dier.

Fazio has represented Andalusian side Sevilla for seven years, helping the La Liga side to Copa del Rey and Europa League triumphs, and his arrival may well leave Tottenham open to selling captain Michael Dawson.

The England man has been hotly tipped to join Hull City a move that may be rubber stamped once Pochettino welcomes in the massive 6ft 5in centre-back.
