Tottenham have reportedly joined the race for Genoa striker Giovanni Simeone — son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone. In Belgium, champions Anderlecht have been linked with a move for West Brom target and former Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen, while in England, West Ham are plotting a deal for Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina. Here's a brief report of these transfer headlines:

Mauricio Pochettino interested in signing Giovanni Simeone

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a swap with Genoa for their talented striker, but they've yet to formally submit a bid for the youngster, according to Mirror.

Mauricio Pochettino, who played alongside the striker's father Diego Simeone for Argentina, is said to be a big fan of Giovanni Simeone and is in the transfer market for a top class forward. While the 22-year-old talent continues to attract serious interests from club sides around Europe, Tottenham Hotspur must act fast in order to snap up the youngster this summer. Giovanni Simeone bagged thirteen goals in his debut season in the Italian top flight for Genoa, adding to his increasing reputation around Europe.

Thomas Vermaelen set to leave Barcelona

According to the Sun, Belgian giants RSC Anderlecht are leading the race to sign former Arsenal center back Thomas Vermaelen. Thomas Vermaelen is expected to be on the move this summer. A potential move back to his homeland Belgium is in the cards and Anderlecht looks like the favorite to lure him back to the Belgian top flight. However, Crystal Palace, Watford and West Brom have all shown interest in the Belgium player but a decision on his future is not likely to be made until the ending of this month.

It is suggested West Brom have been monitoring the center back for the past few months but have yet to make any formal deal for the Belgian. Vermaelen, 31, made just twenty-one appearances in his three-year stint with Barcelona due to constant injuries and he endured similar issues during a loan stint in AS Roma last season.

West Ham willing to sign Mario Lemina

West Ham United are ready to try to lure Mario Lemina to England, as the Hammer's boss Slaven Bilic continues to strengthen his squad in the summer window.

Juventus are aware of the Gabon player's frustration with the club and are ready to let the midfielder leave for the right destination this summer, according to Sky Sports. Mario Lemina is in need of regular first team football and is set to be on the move this summer. Lemina, 23, managed just 899 minutes of playing time during Juve's Serie. A title winning campaign last term featured only 270 minutes of action in the UEFA Champions League. Everton are also said to be linked with the Gabon international, while Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is a fan of Lemina.
