Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly looking to sign Argentine defender Cristian Romero this summer.

Yesterday we covered reports that the Premier League club are in advanced talks with the 23-year-old.

The player was on loan at Atalanta last season and produced some hugely impressive performances.

He made 31 league appearances for the club, scoring two goals and assisting three.

Atalanta can sign him permanently for around £13.8 million, and it is believed they will exercise their option and then sell him for a considerable profit.

Newly appointed Tottenham director Fabio Paratici knows Romero well, having signed him for Juventus in 2019.

It is no secret that Tottenham must improve their defence this summer, and Romero could prove to be a quality long-term acquisition.

He was one of the best defenders in Serie A last season and also performed well in the Champions League.

The young defender recently helped his country win the Copa America title, with Argentina lifting the trophy after beating Brazil in the final.

Romero is still quite young and will improve with experience and coaching. He could prove to be a bargain for Spurs.

Some Tottenham fans are excited about his potential arrival – here is what they had to say.
