Football journalist Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on his latest Twitch stream about all things transfer-related ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
Romano spoke about potential incomings and outgoings at Tottenham Hotspur and discussed the role of their new director of football, Fabio Paratici.
Has Fabio Paratici been a good appointment so far?
The 49-year-old’s arrival appears to have been a key component in the club’s plans to rebuild their squad this summer following their far from impressive 2020/21 campaign, which saw them finish outside the top six for the first time in 12 years.
Speaking about where Spurs may look next in the transfer window, Romano had the following to say on the Italian director of football at Spurs.
“I’m told Fabio Paratici is working, guys. Fabio Paratici is working hard in the market and in the next days we’ll have some update for Tottenham.”
TIF Thoughts on Paratici’s arrival…
It seems the arrival of Paratici has kickstarted Tottenham into action this summer in terms of both arrivals and departures.
Spurs have already seen Erik Lamela and Toby Alderweireld removed from their wage bill as the two players departed earlier this summer.
The futures of players such as Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Moussa Sissoko are also under question, with the club reportedly telling the trio they can find new clubs.
However, Paratici’s arrival has already seen Spurs benefit from his contacts in Serie A with the signings of Gollini and Romero, while the club also linked to Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez – so it seems he has had an immediate effect in north London.
