Tottenham’s hopes to get their priority transfer deal done have surely taken an upswing as numerous Italian sources including L’eco Di Bergamo are announcing that Matteo Lovato has agreed to join Atalanta.
The cost is thought to be in the region of €11 million including bonuses (€8 million as the fixed part and €3 million as the bonus) and will immediately go to the Percassi family club. 15% of the amount will be divided between Genoa and Padua, the former clubs of the player, Genoa, and Padua.
Of course, Tottenham needs to get the money in place, and the frequently interminable discussions over the scheduling of payments must also be agreed upon.
I take a view that Spurs; other targets for this position are substandard and won’t give us the same chances that Romero might, in what is going to be a truly challenging season.
Once these tasks are completed, perhaps we might see some more movement from Spurs?
