Can you name all 10 ex-Spurs players?

The likes of Jules Kounde, Milan Skriniar and Nikola Milenkovic have been mentioned among others as managing director Fabio Paratici aims to oversee a major revamp of Spurs’ backline.

Paratici has been tasked with developing Tottenham’s sporting operations and looks set to have a big say when it comes to their transfer business.

The Latest: Longari drops Spurs claim involving Romero…

Writing on Twitter, Longari has now dropped a Spurs claim involving Romero as Paratici sets his sights on the Atalanta powerhouse.

Indeed he claims ‘Tottenham have made an enquiry’ for the Argentina international alongside La Liga giants Barcelona – with Manchester United also in the race for his signature.

Romero has just enjoyed an impressive 2020/2021 season at the Gewiss Stadium and followed that up with a brilliant Copa America, standing out in the group stage and playing the final against Brazil as Argentina clinched glory (Planet Football).

The Verdict: Do it Paratici…

In terms of the numbers, they clearly highlight Romero as a colossal defender who could help to improve Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

According to WhoScored, only Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (2.6), Serge Aurier (2.9) and Davinson Sanchez (2.2) from the Spurs squad averaged more tackles per 90 than the 23-year-old (2) over 20/21.

Meanwhile, no Spurs player could match Romero’s impressive rate of 3.1 interceptions per match (WhoScored).

The young defender has also been lauded as ‘phenomenal’ and a ‘top, top defender’ by Forza Italian Football editor Conor Clancy after his impressive season with Atalanta (This is Futbol).

We therefore urge Paratici and Spurs to secure a move this summer.
