Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Tottenham really want to sign Antonio Nusa and pushing to get the deal done.
Spurs have signed two players so far, Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin, but they are not done yet as they want to cap off the window with a deal in place for the highly-rated youngster Antonio Nusa.
They have been in talks with Club Brugge for a while regarding a potential deal for their promising young talent, Antonio Nusa.
Recent reports suggested that talks are continuing with Spurs keen on getting a deal wrapped up as soon as possible to avoid it turning into a race as several top clubs are also said to eyeing Nusa.
Transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano has now offered an update on the ongoing transfer saga and explained the reasons behind the urgency of the representatives from the North London outfit to finalise a deal for the wonder kid.
He told GiveMeSport:
“They really want him because they believe Antonio Nusa is going to be a special player. He is a special talent in a position where Tottenham need someone for the present and future, so that is why they are pushing.
“They also know that there are other clubs interested in Antonio Nusa, especially in England, so they want to be fast and close the deal as soon as possible.
“Tottenham are going to have new contacts with Club Brugge in the next days again for Nusa. I think this is going to be their big focus in the next days.”
However, it has been reported that the 18-year-old is not inclined to leave the club this month, and discussions may lead to a deal being finalised for the summer, with Nusa potentially remaining on loan for the rest of the season.
In the Belgian Pro League, the Norwegian has scored three goals and contributed two assists in 15 appearances.
Spurs are hoping to agree a deal this month which will see the player being loaned back to the club for the rest of the season, an arrangement similar to Destiny Udogie’s.
