Spurs chasing Argentine defender

Updated: April 2, 2012

Tottenham are leading the race to sign Argentine defender Julian Velazquez.

The 21 year old is currently on the books of Independiente and has also caught the eye of Italian rivals Roma and Lazio.

However according to the Gazzetta dello Sport Spurs look set to snap up the defender in a £4 million pound deal.

Velazquez, who won his first cap for Argentina against Paraquay last year, is widely regarded as one of the most promising defenders in South America and helped his club side win the Copa Sudamericana in 2010.
