Balzaretti not joining Tottenham

Roma’s Federico Balzaretti will not be heading to Tottenham in exchange for Benoit Assou-Ekotto, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.

The two clubs have been in talks over Erik Lamela’s imminent move to London, but they also discussed swapping left-backs.

However, the proposed switch collapsed because the Cameroon international told club officials he wished to remain with Spurs.

Balzaretti, 31, only joined the capital club last season from Palermo. He appeared in 27 League games for the Giallorossi.
