Genoa are in advanced talks for Tottenham midfielder Iago Falque.

The Daily Mail says Falque is expected to complete a £4m move to Italian club Genoa.

The 24-year-old Spaniard scored from the spot in Spurs' recent 3-3 pre-season friendly draw against Seattle Sounders, but Mauricio Pochettino has deemed him surplus to requirements.

Falque joined Tottenham in 2011 on loan from Juventus, before signing a permanent deal the following January.
