Sky reporter Michael Bridge has been left excited by some in-house transfer news as Tottenham Hotspur confirm the permanent signing of Cristian Romero.
The Lowdown: Spurs complete another deal…
Spurs have completed moves for Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence and Destiny Udogie as sporting director Fabio Paratici fully backs his manager.
Who should Spurs sign in last minute deal?
Indeed, the 2022/2023 Premier League season will be a crucial one as far as supporters are concerned with all eyes on manager Antonio Conte, the squad and whether they can build upon their Champions League qualification from last campaign.
Romero, in a further boost for the club, has now put pen to paper on a permanent Spurs deal from Atalanta with Bridge sharing his ecstatic reaction.
The Latest: Bridge excited by ‘massive’ Romero news…
Speaking on broadcast, the Sky journalist claimed this news is ‘massive’ and a major positive for the north Londoners ahead of a long season.
“Massive, massive news, he joined last year from Atalanta with the obligation to buy so Tottenham were always going to take this up because he’s such a great defender.
“He’s one of Tottenham’s best signings over the last few seasons, yes it’s not cheap, but he’s a proper defender, for me he’s one of the best in the Premier League.”
The Verdict: Amazing update…
Romero stood out as a colossus for Spurs when available last season, making more tackles and interceptions per 90 than any of his teammates in the top flight (WhoScored).
Indeed, the Argentine will certainly be an invaluable asset for Conte, already starting every match for which he is available/fit this season and looking a dead cert to continue his fine form throughout the campaign.
