Writing on Twitter, Argentinian journalist Adrian E Magnoli has made a major Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving centre-back target Cristian Romero.
The Lowdown: Spurs in Romero talks…
As per numerous sources, Spurs have been in talks to sign Romero from Serie A side Atalanta over this last week, with Sky Sports even lifting the lid on a £34m (€40m) offer from the Lilywhites.
Fabrizio Romano also says that personal terms have been agreed with the player himself, but his current club have been unwilling to let him go too easily.
Romero is said to want the move to north London as a ‘priority‘ this summer, with Magnoli now dropping a major claim on the transfer saga.
The Latest: Romero ‘arrives at Tottenham’…
According to Magnoli, who works for Argentinian outlet DIRECTV, some major news has emerged regarding the 23-year-old and his impending switch to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Indeed, he claims that Romero ‘arrives at Tottenham’ from Atalanta for €50 million (£42.6m) ‘plus bonuses’ with an agreement now reached for him to become Spurs’ third major summer signing.
Nuno Espirito Santo has already overseen the confirmed arrivals of both Pierluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil as new managing director Fabio Paratici looks to complete a summer overhaul.
The Verdict: Big claim…
There is little denying that Romero will gift Spurs some real defensive solidarity upon his alleged arrival at N17.
The Argentine colossus made a brilliant 3.1 interceptions per 90 on average over 29 Italian top flight starts last campaign, far more than any Spurs defender managed in the Premier League (WhoScored).
Italian football expert Conor Clancy also lavished the player with praise recently, calling Romero ‘one of the most exciting centre-backs in the world’ in an exclusive interview with The Transfer Tavern.
As per this fresh update, Spurs may have just landed themselves a huge coup.
