Serie A defender wants a move to Tottenham; decision coming soon
By Eddie Razo -

Bologna F.C. 1909 defender Takehiro Tomiyasu is atop Tottenham Hotspur’s transfer wishlist this summer. After the Serie A club rejected an initial bid, the Premier League side is ready to make another offer for the 22-year-old. 

The initial offer that Tottenham made was around €18-million, but Spurs saw this proposal rejected. Despite their first offer falling by the wayside, there’s still good news on the pursuit of Tomiyasu. 

Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that the Japanese international wants the move to Tottenham. Furthermore, he details no other English club negotiating for the defender, but Atalanta BC is expressing interest in Tomiyasu. 

Nonetheless, Tottenham does lead the way at the moment on this tracking, considering the player wants to join. Romano adds that a decision should be coming soon. 

Tomiyasu joined Bologna in 2019 and has made 63 appearances where he’s played at central defense, right-back, and defensive midfielder. The Japanese defender is a versatile player that hopes Tottenham can secure a deal for him.

TOP players go to clubs that win things, that’s not us. Therefore we are left to fight for players who either a) the top clubs dont want or b) don’t want to sit on the bench at top clubs. That doesn’t necessarily make us a bad proposition, it just puts us in the mix fighting for the scraps with the majority of other clubs outside the elite. So what? Thats normal.

I’m pleased to see almost all the talk is around defenders. Swapping out Aurier, Sanchez, and Winks would be a big step forward for the coming season. What about Dier? Well I don’t know, there was a player in there once, I’m interested to see if Nuno can coax him out again.

We’re not going to sign half a dozen amazing new players, let’s focus on trying to not throw games away, imagine if we’d been better through minutes 80-90 last season – we’d be in the Champs League for sure.

Enic have created an atmosphere of doubt around the club, there is no sense of ambition or desire to achieve, it feels like the club is suffering inertia and is without purpose.
If ever the club needs a boost it has to be in the coming month before the new season, how and where this comes from I have no idea but I wish someone from within the club would come forward and provide some words of enthusiasm and positivity, anybody.

Blind hope. I’m not knocking you, but that’s all it is. Its keep me at the table too even though we all know that blind hope is all it is given Enic’s history. I’m ready to invoke the almighty as it strikes me we are in need of a minor miracle.

For every bit of “promising” news there are three bits of “bad” news it seems. Even this story should come with a cautionary note in that I think Tomiyasu might be a bit slow for PL? Apparently, Bologna is not happy with the offer from Spurs anyway and they will deal only on their terms. Apparently, long term target Skriniar does not want to come to Spurs; apparently, Kounde does not want to come to Spurs. I have said earlier that getting the manager right was crucial and Dan screwed that up in the sense that he spent forever coming to a decision and more successful managers slipped away into the shadows for who knows what reasons. Can’t help thinking that a Conte, for all his faults, might at least have ended up being a more attractive proposition for incoming players to work with? (notwithstanding the obvious problem of only third rate European football on offer!)

Nobody worth a damn wants to come….after all the cooing about the stadium it’s been shown up to be the myth it is.

When has anyone ever said “I want to join X or Y because they have a magnificent stadium and I want so much to play in it.”

ie F–k the trophies, I just want to play in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and enjoy those magnificent training facilities. I mean trophies are rather vulgar, don’t you think?

Trouble, too, is that the “bad” news is more likely to turn into reality.

Can you blame players for not wanting to come to Spurs? Under enic we’re going backwards and it’s a sure fire way to run your career prospects and win nothing. Levy’s circus will never attract anyone good ever again.

He’ll be a good start. Still need another centre back, right back and striker alternative. We’re already playing catch-up but that’s nothing new for us when it comes to transfers and pre-season.
