This summer, Tottenham Hotspur revamped its backline, adding Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal; however, the north London-based club is far from done fixing its defense for new manager Nuno Espírito Santo.
According to Calciomercato, Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici is interested in bringing AS Roma central defender Roger Ibañez. The report doesn’t add further details on what the English club is willing to offer or what the Italian side would want for the 22-year-old.
However, it does state that Ibañez would like the opportunity to play for Spurs should the opportunity present itself. The defender has made 57 appearances for the capital club, registering two goals and two assists for Roma.
Furthermore, the Brazil international is under contract until 2025, so Roma has all the leverage in potential discussions. When it comes to a possible asking price, it could cost £22-million per Transfermarkt; nonetheless, a good 2021-22 season with the Serie A side and that price could be going up.
