Tottenham Hotspur are considering a bold move for Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo, according to the Express.
Former Blues and Juve striker Gianluca Vialli mentioned that he had heard rumours of contact between the Italy international and the North London club whilst he was in the studio for The Old Lady’s 3-2 win over AC Milan on Sunday evening.
That match was the 34 year old’s 75th Serie A appearance since switching from Milan in 2011, while his fifteenth minute equaliser was his first goal of the campaign.
He is not yet certain of a new deal with the Italian Champions, with manager Antonio Conte as yet unsure if he deserves an extension.
A host of Premier League clubs have been linked with Pirlo, though it appears that Spurs are leading in the race for his services.
He is set to win his 60th cap for Italy in Denmark on Friday evening, and while the Azzurri have already booked their place in Brazil next summer, they can be backed at 2/1 to win the game.
