Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge has told This is Futbol that Atalanta centre-back Cristian Romero is Tottenham’s number one defensive target this window.
Following a wretched campaign under Jose Mourinho, it’s no secret that Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to seriously improve his backline.
Do you think Bryan Gil will be a regular starter for Tottenham?
Tottenham have already moved on Toby Alderweireld and Juan Foyth, whilst Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez, the two players that were responsible for the majority of Spurs’ defensive lapses last season, could soon join them.
Despite being apart in their valuation, Bridge told This is Futbol that Romero, who played five times for Argentina at the Copa America, is the one the north London outfit desperately want.
“It sounds to me that Romero, universally everyone knows that Romero is the key and the number one player Tottenham want.
“It would be him and someone else as well in an ideal world.”
