Tottenham could be eyeing English defender should Cristian Romero transfer fall
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Atalanta BC defender Cristian Romero is hanging by a thread as talks remain ongoing. It seems as though the English club might be putting together a Plan B should the transfer for the Argentine defender fall through. 

According to the Calciomercato, the London-based club is expressing interest in AS Roma defender Chris Smalling. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Tottenham club chief Fabio Paratici has an interest in someone he saw in person during his time in Serie A. 

Furthermore, Smalling has experience in the Premier League during his time with Manchester United. As a result, there’s not much of an adjustment to settling into a new league. 

Smalling has found a home with Roma since deciding to venture abroad. However, at 31-years-old, the veteran defender isn’t going to be a long-term solution to solving Tottenham’s backline issues. 

Tottenham needs to find a defender that’s going to anchor their backline for the foreseeable future. Not a player who is exiting the prime years of their football career.

Two weeks to go, still no signings to start in the team..and my prediction of this and Kane being on the bench are getting ever so closer…

Just watching some of the training session at the new stadium..have to say Moura looks a lot sharper…fingers crossed..

Can’t stand the idea of playing Chelsea & Arsenal in a pre season friendly, just doesn’t seem right..

So “struggling” City are going to get Grealish for 100 mill then…..where’s that come from Pep? I suspected Kane would stay for now cos it ain’t City’s year this year. Red half.
Utter circus in football now, friendlys being cancelled left right and centre because “cases”….none of these players are ill I expect, more testing farce. Good luck preparing for a season with this sh$t show, only seems to happen to lower leagues largely…..standard.

Yeah, me too. Should know by now that anything by Eddie or Bruce is desperately padded out nonsense lifted from elsewhere, and yet, as you say, here we all are.

I’m here to make a comment….😂Why the f#$ck would we want to sell our best defender who is about the same age, and replace him with another “has been defender”. Doesn’t make sense…Oh hang on unless Levy has been offered Smalling for FREE…. 😂😂

The amount of stock some place on these transfer rumours during the window is hilarious. They are mainly smoke and mirrors with ‘journalists’ (loose term) guessing, copy and pasting other stories and adding their own twist and, of course, clubs planting stories.

There’s as much chance of Smalling joining Spurs as there is Gazza making a comeback. Nothing to see here, just clickbait.

This absurd rumour regarding Smalling is patently utter drivel. The Italian journalist concerned is either suffering from sunstroke or has a brain the size of a pea! Smalling is rising 32 and is markedly inferior as a CB to Toby Alderweireld, also 32, who we have just sold! Unless both Paratici and Levy have taken total leave of their senses, extremely unlikely, then there is zero chance that we sign Smalling!

Thankfully there IS someone else out here with a functioning brain. That story made zero sense to me as well
