Fabrizio Romano provides update on Spurs’ pursuit of Atalanta star

Posted by

Leading football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has offered Tottenham Hotspur fans an update regarding the Londoners’ pursuit of Atalanta defender Christian Romero.

Tottenham Hotspur has been linked with signing Romero for quite some time. Despite the ongoing talks between the two clubs, so far, an agreement has failed to be reached.

However, although an agreement is still some way off, Romano has confirmed that the centre-back is Daniel Levy’s summer priority.

Taking to his official Twitter account, Romano has revealed that although Atalanta is demanding €55m in exchange for the 23-year-old, Tottenham Hotspur is only prepared to offer between €40m and €45m.

Still, with several weeks left in this summer’s transfer window, there is time for the Londoners to strike a deal, however, they have been handed a boost after it has emerged that despite reports, Barcelona has not yet launched a formal bid.

More Stories Christian Romero Fabrizio Romano


  1. Romero must now be EXTREMELY unsettled at Atalanta. so unless they want to keep him until his value goes back down again through mismanagement of him, it makes no sense whatsoever to keep hold of him. I mean they are making tens of millions on him anyway.
    Greed has taken over big time, and it wont pay off in the long run.

  2. The more I think about it the more plan B seems the better option. Get the deals done and dusted and asap get the players in the training ground ready for the new season. This is dragging on so badly, and the pressure on Romero to perform following such a published move is something he wont have faced before.
