Flocking to Twitter, many Tottenham Hotspur fans have erupted over a claim involving Serie A defender and long-time target Takehiro Tomiyasu.
The Japan international has been on Tottenham’s transfer radar for some time now, with Sky Sports lifting the lid on a rejected £12.9m (€15m) offer, plus an extra £2.6m (€3m) in add-ons.
The Athletic, following on from that development, claimed Spurs found common ground with Bologna and were even finalising terms – but there have been few updates since then.
Now, a claim from Italy has emerged which could come as welcome news in the race to sign Tomiyasu this summer.
Indeed, Calciomercato.it now say that an agreement has been reached ‘in principle’ for his signing from Bologna and the deal can go through after Tomiyasu finishes his stint at the Olympic games.
Flocking to this news, with personal terms having also been agreed for a while, it’s safe to say that most Lilywhites supporters are overjoyed.
One even called it ‘fantastic news’ and many more have erupted in response to The Spurs Express and The Spurs Web.
