Tottenham Hotspur wants to improve its backline this summer, and the Premier League side is on the verge of landing their target to begin rebuilding the defense.
According to Calciomercatonews, Atalanta BC defender Cristian Romero is getting closer and closer to Tottenham. One hurdle is cleared for a possible transfer as Tottenham has an agreement with the player’s entourage on a salary.
There are no further details on what time of salary Tottenham is offering Romero, but it seems as though it’s enough that both parties to agree on a deal.
For the transfer to occur, the final hurdle for Tottenham to clear is to reach a deal with Atalanta over a transfer sum. There is still a slight distance between Atalanta’s request for €60 million and the British offer of €50-million.
The report states that FC Barcelona tried to hijack the transfer, but the club’s financial situation prevents them from making a suitable offer.
