Tottenham have no problem paying €40-45 million for 22-year-old target

By Saikat -

Tottenham are willing to meet the demands of Bologna as they look to sign Riccardo Calafiori.

Despite having added Micky van de Ven and Radu Dragusin to their squad over the last two windows, Ange Postecoglou still feels the need to sign another centre-back to ensure they have enough depth to compete with the best teams in the country.

According to Tutto Juve, Tottenham are keen on signing Riccardo Calafiori and they would be willing to meet Bologna’s request of €40-45 million for the young Italian defensive sensation.

The 22-year-old has attracted a lot of interest on the back of his impressive performances and Bologna are hoping for a bidding war in the summer.

Things might not have worked out for Calafiori at AS Roma but his return to the Italian top flight has been exceptional. After proving himself at FC Basel, he made the switch to Bologna last summer. In his debut season, he was involved in 30 Serie A games and even contributed towards seven goals.

The 22-year-old excelled as a centre-back as well as a left-back. His consistent performances resulted in him getting picked for the Euros where he has managed to further enhance his reputation. Spurs feel he could be an ideal fit for their team and his versatility could come in handy.

Tottenham have no intention to miss out on Clafiori. They are pushing for his signature in recent days and have no problem meeting Bologna’s asking price of €40-45 million. While striking a deal with the Italian club won’t be a problem, Spurs will have to convince the player about the move as he prefers reuniting with Thiago Motta at Juventus.
