Tottenham’s Cristian Romero pursuit laid bare as they chase Argentine defender


Tottenham’s Cristian Romero pursuit laid bare as they chase Argentine defender

Tottenham’s Centre-back chase

After failing to land either Jules Kounde from Sevilla or Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan, Tottenham have turned their attentions to Atalanta man Cristian Romero.

Romero enjoyed a stellar season with Atalanta last time out, with his performances at the heart of their defence having persuaded the club’s hierarchy to take up a permanent option in his loan deal from Juventus.

Such performances have put clubs on high alert for the 23-year-old, with Spurs thought to be actively chasing a deal having now completed a move for team-mate Pierluigi Gollini.

Fabrizio Romano, trusted journalist when it comes to all things transfer-related, reports that any deal would require a fee of around 55 million euros (47 million pounds) to be completed.

First bid rejected

According to sources in Italy, Tottenham have already seen an initial bid for their main target rejected by the Italian outfit. Gianluigi Longari, journalist at Tutto Mercarto, reports that a first offer of 35 million euros plus 10 million in add-ons has been knocked back by Gasperini’s side.

This would line up with Romano’s suggestion that 55 million euros may be needed to convince Atalanta to sell.

However, Spurs may have an ace up their sleeve in the form of Colombian Davinson Sanchez. As per Longari, Atalanta are interested in taking the player to Italy, which could drastically reduce the outlay for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

Sanchez has previously been linked with a move away from north London this summer, meaning such a deal could suit all parties very well.
