Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper and Sky Sports pundit Paul Robinson has been left excited by some major news out of the club.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye first pieces of business…
The Lilywhites and transfer chief Fabio Paratici are allegedly eyeing their first pieces of business ahead of the summer with some big decisions made behind-the-scenes, according to reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano.
Sharing news last week, the transfer journalist claims that Spurs are set to back manager Antonio Conte with the permanent signings of Dejan Kulusevski and Cristian Romero – a move which will cost the club around £68 million.
The Latest: Robinson excited…
He explained: “To get Romero and Kulusevski for that price is great business.”
“That is extremely cheap for two players of that calibre. I suspect there would be a lot of teams very interested in those two were Spurs not to sign them permanently.
“You have to put a lot down to the manager and Paratici. Their relationship and knowledge of the Italian market is paying dividends.
“That is a sign of what is to come in the summer I think. I’m sure there will be another one or two signings coming in from Italy.
“Spurs have to back Conte in this window. Another window like January would only be good for the club.”
The Verdict: Great news…
Both men have been absolutely integral for Spurs over 2021/2022, making their permanent deals an absolute no brainer.
Kulusevski, since arriving in January, has formed a deadly understanding with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min as part of a brilliant attacking front-three.
Meanwhile, Romero has topped Tottenham’s charts as their most colossal defensive presence – making the most tackles and interceptions per 90 for them in England’s top flight (WhoScored).
Indeed, Robinson has every right to be excited by Romano’s update on the pair.
