Tottenham are locked in talks with Atalanta over the possible acquisition of defender Cristian Romero, reports Sky Sports.

Romero excelled last term while on loan at Atalanta from Juventus. His superb performances in Serie A appear to have caught the eye of those drawing up plans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Sky Sports report that talks are ongoing between Tottenham and Atalanta over the transfer of Romero’s services.

It’s claimed that Tottenham are prepared to offer €40M to get the Argentine through the door, while personal terms are not thought to be a problem, with a five-year contract written up and ready to go.

Whether Spurs will be able to strike an agreement with Atalanta remains to be seen. Following the departure of Toby Alderweireld, signing a new centre-back has become a priority.

The Spurs faithful will be crossing their fingers that the money being spent is to appease talisman Harry Kane, rather than replace his influence in anticipation of a possible summer departure.
