Tottenham are set to announce a new signing after their bid of €50million + €5million in add ons was agreed.
It’s been well-documented that Spurs were looking to improve their defence this summer and now that ambition is set to turn to reality.
It was reported in The Times last week that Tottenham were closing in on the £47million signing of Atalanta defender Cristian Romero.
The reliable Fabrizio Romano reported on Tuesday that Tottenham’s offer has now been accepted. Now Romero will simply have to finalise personal terms and complete a medical before his move to Spurs is complete.
Toby Alderweireld has left the club this summer and Davinson Sanchez’s future is in doubt. A new central defensive signing was always an essential for the club this summer and Romero is an exciting addition.
23-year-old Romero is a very dominant defender, averaging 3.6 aerial duels per 90 in Serie A last season. His magnificent leap helps him achieve this, given he stands at 6ft 1′, not that big for a central defender. He is also known for maturity off the ball beyond his years, with concentration and ball interception listed as two of his key strengths by WhoScored.
Once the signing of Romero is finalised, the club should be turning their attentions to a pair of attacking signings.
