The Serie A centre-back, Takehiro Tomiyasu has been on the Spur radar for quite some time now. After weeks of negotiations and speculations, the 22-year old’s link with the Lilywhites is still unclear. The recent reports highlight the possible agreement talks being underway between the Londoners and the Italians regarding the defender’s fee.
The figure of £17 million is circulating with the news offered by the Hotspurs to Bologna for the Japanese International and the trade seems to be in its final terms. Tomiyasu in favour of the transfer, Tottenham Hotspur, is set to welcome another young potential into the team’s defence following Cristian Romero from Atalanta. While Toby Alderweireld’s exit, Davinson Sanchez future exit, and Serge Aurier-Matt Doherty’s underperformance are on the Premier League club’s plate, Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad is taking measures to strike back with strong defence in the midfield.
