Andre Villas-Boas: Linked with a move for highly-regarded defender Marco Perrotta
Tottenham are among a host of clubs chasing highly-rated Pescara defender Marco Perrotta, according to the player's agent.
The 18-year-old is regarded as an exciting prospect for the future and will have the chance to impress in the Italian top flight this season following Pescara's promotion from Serie B.
Perrotta's representative, Ulisse Savini, says his focus is on performing as well as he can but admits there is a lot of interest.
While Spurs are understood to be keen on bringing Perrotta to England, Savini insists they would face fierce competition for his signature from clubs in Italy.
He said in 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."
