An insight into the upcoming move of Atalanta star Cristian Romero to Tottenham Hotspur was released on Thursday.
Serie A outstanding
In the last few weeks the connections between Spurs and the Argentine stopper Romero have of course increased significantly.
This comes with the new Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo – in the back of Toby Alderweireld’s surprising departure – looking for reinforcements in the heart of his defense.
So far, Jules Kounde, Kurt Zouma and Nikola Milenkovic have all been identified as potential newcomers to North London.
Romero remains the firm “priority” of Daniel Levy and Co., however, with the ex-Juventus man fresh from a Serie A breakout season aided by Copa America fame with his country.
Tottenham are still in negotiations for Cristian Romero, but have not yet reached an agreement on a € 55 million transfer fee – he has priority. 100%. ️ #THFC
Plan B: Open talks to hire 3 different defense attorneys for the same amount. Tomiyasu [€18m], Milenkovic [€15m] and Zouma [€25m].
Caleta-Car, NOT even an option.

Demiral in / Romero out
And, as noted above, if the latest word making the rounds in European media on Thursday is something, then it seems that Tottenham is imminent to get its man.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Juventus’s Merih Demiral, Romero’s longtime replacement at Atalanta, completed his medical treatment at La Dea this afternoon.
The Turk will move to Bergamo on loan for the season, with the deal including an option to buy.
Such a move, in turn, will open the door for Romero to exit, a development that could already take place on Thursday.
Romano adds that the highly regarded defender is prepared to fly to north London “later today” before putting a deal with Spurs on paper in a € 55m deal:
Merih Demiral successfully completed his medical degree today when he joined Atalanta from Juventus. Credit confirmed with purchase option, deal completed. 🇹🇷 #Atalanta
… and Cristian Romero will fly to London today to sign with Tottenham for 55 million euros. 🛫🇬🇧 #THFC
