Tottenham plan to unveil January signing ‘by next week’ after tracking him for 18 months

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur continues to be linked with a move for the Genoa defender Radu Dragusin.

A report from Dean Jones claims that Tottenham have been tracking the defender for over 18 months, and they plan to unveil him as their first January signing ‘by next week’.

Tottenham are confident that they will be able to agree personal terms with the defender easily and they are now hoping to secure an agreement with the Italian club.

Jones believes that the final fee for the defender is likely to be under £25 million.

Dean Jones, speaking on the Ranks FC Ultras Podcast, said: “It’s gone beyond a line of enquiry now, I’m told they’re confident personal terms won’t be a problem and it’s just the terms of a transfer and what fee it would be, it will be under £25m I think, if it comes together it will be this week, Spurs have like six fall-back options if this falls apart, but by next week they want to unveil this signing.”

Tottenham have other alternatives lined up if the transfer does not go through, and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

The journalist has revealed that Dragusin was not Tottenham’s preferred choice ahead of the January window and they wanted to sign Jean-Clair Todibo from OGC Nice.

However, a move from the French international defender seems highly unlikely this month, and Tottenham have now decided to move on to the 21-year-old Romanian central defender.

Dragusin is a prodigious young talent who has already established himself as one of the best young defenders in the Italian league and he has the quality to thrive in the Premier League as well. He could be a long-term asset for Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou could help the player fulfil his tremendous potential with regular football in the Premier League.

If Tottenham can sign him for a fee of around £25 million, it could prove to be a superb, long-term investment for them.
