Tottenham confident of completing move for Japanese defender

Tottenham are confident of sealing a move for Japanese defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, according to reports.

Tottenham need a new centre-back

Tottenham have, for some time, required reinforcements at centre-back.

Spurs’ previously dominant pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld has now broken up, with the former having departed the club, and the latter looking some way past his best.

Elsewhere, both Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez can be quite error-prone.

This leaves just Joe Rodon, whose lack of top-flight experience was laid bare on a number of occasions last term.

So, if Spurs hope to get back to finishing in the Premier League’s top-four on a regular basis again, they probably need to bring in some reinforcements at the back.

Tottenham eyeing Tomiyasu

And now, it appears that the Lilywhites have identified at least one player who could help to strengthen their defence.

That player, according to the Sun, is Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Tomiyasu joined current side Bologna in July of 2019 from Belgian outfit Sint-Truiden, for a reported fee of around £8m.

Tomiyasu has since gone on to feature 63 times for the Serie A outfit, including 33 times this past season, during which he scored two goals.

The 22-year-old is also a regular feature in Japan’s national side, for whom he has lined out 23 times.

And whilst he is a centre-back by trade, the stopper is very comfortable being deployed at right-back, too.

In turn, according to the Sun, Spurs are lining up a move for Tomiyasu ahead of their managerial appointment, with the Lilywhites confident of getting a deal done.
