Fabio Paratici, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, could complete his fourth summer transfer next week.
Tottenham has had a busy summer transfer season and is apparently looking to add a fourth player as quickly as possible.
Tottenham are expected to make Takehiro Tomiyasu their fourth summer signing once Cristian Romero’s transfer is finalised. The latter is likely to arrive shortly from Atalanta.
Spurs are making a few changes to their roster to aid new manager Nuno Espirito Santo in leading the team to a successful Premier League season in 2021-22.
Nuno has previously added Perluigi Gollini and Bryan Gil to bolster his squad.
Goalkeeper Gollini has joined from Atalanta in a potential double swoop, with Romero on the way.
The goalkeeper has agreed to a season-long loan, while Gil has joined from Sevilla for £25 million.
Erik Lamela, a long-serving Spurs midfielder, has also joined the La Liga club in exchange.
By the time Romero arrives, the north Londoners will have spent nearly £75 million on incomings, with Sky Sports projecting a fee of approximately £47 million.
But it hasn’t prevented them from pursuing other targets, and according to Sport Witness, Japan international Tomiyasu will be the next to arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Last season, the 22-year-old made 31 appearances in Serie A and represented Japan three times at the Olympics. He is capable of playing as a centre-back as well as a right-back.
Spurs’ third excursion into the Italian market, thanks to managing director of football Fabio Paratici’s network, could result in the signing of Tomiyasu.
During chairman Daniel Levy’s long and tumultuous search for Jose Mourinho’s successor, Paratici was named to his position.
After nearly appointing Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca, and Gennaro Gattuso at various points of the managerial recruiting process, both men settled on Nuno, the former Wolves manager.
Nuno has had a good pre-season on the field thus far, going undefeated in friendlies.
Spurs have won at MK Dons and Colchester United, while drawing at Leyton Orient and Chelsea.
However, the 47-year-preseason old’s preparations have taken place against the backdrop of Harry Kane’s transfer crisis.
The striker wants to leave the club this summer in search of silverware, and has set his sights on Premier League champions Manchester City for a £150 million transfer fee.
Despite being set to return for regular testing on Monday, Kane is avoiding Spurs’ training ground. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
