Major boost for Tottenham as Atalanta secure deal for potential Romero replacement

Major boost for Tottenham as Atalanta secure deal for potential Romero replacement

 

Premier League outfit Tottenham have today been handed a potentially significant boost in their pursuit of Atalanta star Cristian Romero.

La Dea standout

Recent weeks have of course seen links between Spurs and Argentinian stopper Romero ramp up in a major way.

This comes with new Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo – on the back of Toby Alderweireld’s surprise departure – on the lookout for reinforcements at the heart of his backline.

To this point, the likes of Jules Kounde, Kurt Zouma and Nikola Milenkovic have all been tipped as potential arrivals in North London.

Romero, though, remains the firm ‘priority’ of Daniel Levy and co., with the ex-Juventus man fresh off the back of something of a breakout season in Serie A, followed by Copa America glory with Argentina.

Lovato secured

The major stumbling block faced by the board at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when it comes to Romero’s potential addition, however, has come in the form of Atalanta’s stance on their star stopper.

The 23-year-old, as outlined above, is thought to be valued somewhere in the region of 55 million euro, a considerable sum when taking into account Romero’s relative lack of experience at the top level.

In turn, it had been suggested over the last couple of days that Spurs could yet look elsewhere for defensive reinforcements.

But, if the latest word doing the rounds on social media on Friday evening is anything to go by, then a deal being struck between the respective boards in Bergamo and North London may in fact be closer than previously thought.

This comes with Atalanta on the verge of bringing in a highly-regarded young defender of their own – Matteo Lovato:

The general assumption is that Lovato is set to be lured to the Gewiss Stadium as a potential replacement for Romero, with Tottenham, in turn, ‘pushing again’ to get a deal over the line.
