Flocking to Twitter, many Tottenham Hotspur fans have erupted over the official announcement of third major summer signing Cristian Romero after long talks.
Spurs have been attempting to sign the Argentine from Atalanta over these last two weeks with the Serie A side having remained stubborn in negotiations for a period.
However, news broke recently of an agreement between the clubs as Tottenham now finalise his signing and make an announcement.
Romero has joined the Lilywhites as Nuno Espirito Santo’s third major summer signing after deals for both Pierluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil, but his arrival in particular finally puts an end to Spurs’ long, long search for a star centre-half.
Tottenham have been trying to sign a colossal defensive presence since last summer, sending Steve Hitchen out to negotiate with Inter Milan for the attempted signing of Milan Skriniar in 2020 (Alasdair Gold).
Romero, though, is arguably worth the wait given his credentials – having won the Serie A MVP award for best defender over 2020/2021.
Here’s how Spurs fans went wild for the big announcement, flocking to reply to the club’s official Twitter account.
