Tottenham Hotspur have this morning confirmed the permanent signing of Cristian Romero.
The defender has been an astute signing for Spurs since his arrival from Atalanta last summer.
After he was discarded by Juventus, Fabio Paratici looks to have once again discovered a gem from Serie A.
Tottenham sign Romero permanently
Spurs have finally made Romero’s move from Atalanta permanent.
It is understood that they had the option to do so for around £42.5 million.
The Argentine has been a key player for Tottenham playing a huge role in helping them return to the Champions League.
He now signs a contract with the club until 2027.
Positive Romero injury update vs West Ham
In further good Romero news for Spurs, the 24-year-old might return from injury against West Ham United.
Sky Sports News claim that the defender could be named in Antonio Conte’s squad to face the Hammers.
Romero suffered a knock against Chelsea and has missed Spurs’ last two matches.
But given the team have kept clean sheets in both games and with the east Londoners struggling to score, it would seem foolish to risk him.
