Spurs have been heavily linked with a potential summer swoop for Atalanta’s centre-back, Cristian Romero.
Could Romero be Alderweireld's long term successor?
The defender has now reportedly agreed to join the north London side this summer, but it is down to the two clubs to agree on a fee for the potential transfer.
Discussing the Argentine’s future, Gold had the following to say on Tottenham’s view of the potential transfer deal.
“The state of play with that one, as I’m aware today, is that there is still dialogue taking place to try and make that deal happen.
“It’s a very complicated one to do because it’s going to be big, big money. Tottenham, they’re not ones for just laying out big money as it is. So it is all about how it is structured and whether they meet the actual asking price.
“As I understand it, [Fabio] Paratici, I’ve spoken about his way of dealing with up to 10 players for each position. I understand Romero is the one he would like the most. Hopefully it will happen, as like I say it would be transformative for Tottenham’s defence.”
TIF Thoughts on Romero to Spurs…
We feel if they can complete the signing of Romero this summer then they will have a player who could prove to be a long-term replacement for Alderweireld given the promise he has shown recently in Serie A.
