Agent of Tottenham ace stirs trouble with fresh comments  

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur secured their long-pursued target, Radu Dragusin, in January after edging out Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Spurs reached an agreement with Genoa for the promising young centre-back, signing him on a six-year contract for a fee of €25 million, with an additional €5 million in potential add-ons.

However, Dragusin found playing time difficult, making only four Premier League starts in his 9 appearances under Ange Postecoglou last season.

However, his agent, Florin Manea, has recently sparked speculation with comments about Napoli scouts possibly watching Dragusin during Romania’s victory over Ukraine in the opening group game of Euro.

Manea, who has been quite unnecessary vocal about Dragusin’s career since his move to North London, mentioned that scouts from Napoli attended the match to observe Ukrainian striker Artem Dovbyk. He then proceeded to stir trouble claiming that these scouts might have also noticed Dragusin’s standout performance.

These remarks have fuelled ongoing debates about Dragusin’s role at Tottenham. With the Lilywhites reportedly looking to bolster their defence with versatile players rather than pure central defenders, questions have arisen about Dragusin’s role within the squad.

Despite this, Manea remains confident in the 22-year-old’s abilities and readiness to face any competition.

Speaking to Romania’s TVPlay, as quoted by Italian outlet TUTTOmercatoWEB, the agent said:

“From what I know, Spurs are not looking for a pure central defender, they are more looking for a versatile defender.

“In any case Dragusin is ready for anything, he is not afraid of the competition. I’m not worried because such a strong defender cannot be stopped. His growth cannot be slowed down.

“As for Dragusin, what can I say, it doesn’t surprise me anymore because I know how he works. If he continues like this, he could become one of the best central defenders in the world.

“Today my partner told me they were there Napoli scouts at the stadium to watch Dovbyk. Maybe they saw the game Dragusin played.!”

Tottenham’s trust in Dragusin is evident from his long-term contract, which runs until June 2030. However, Manea’s comments about Napoli’s interest have added a layer of intrigue regarding the defender’s future.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the Lilywhites must navigate these rumours to support Dragusin’s development while addressing their defensive needs.
