Tottenham are just days away from completing a move to bring Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi to White Hart Lane, according to Metro.

The Argentine forward appears set to leave the Ligue 1 champions after a season of limited playing time.

Lavezzi has struggled to get ahead of the Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore; settling for a place on the substitute.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc is keen to make a number of several changes this summer and plans to bolster his attacking options after the potential sales of Cavani, Lavezzi and Javier Pastore.

According to reports in Italy, close to his former club, Napoli, Spurs are set to complete a deal for the 30-year-old as Mauricio Pochettino looks set to overhaul.

Lavezzi could be available for a fee in the region of £7.2million to £10.8million.
