TuttoMercatoWeb have claimed that Tottenham Hotspur could soon be set to begin negotiations with Atalanta over a deal for Ruslan Malinovskyi.
Malinovskyi has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs over the last week, with reports indicating that Antonio Conte’s men are looking to sign the midfielder on loan with an option to buy (TuttoAtalanta).
CalcioMercato reported on Thursday that Marseille had also entered the race for the Atalanta star and were set to battle Spurs for the 29-year-old’s signature.
The Ligue 1 club’s interest in the Ukrainian was also backed up by Fabrizio Romano, who took to social media a couple of days ago to state that Igor Tudor’s side are ready to offer Cengiz Under to the Serie A club in a deal to bring Malinovskyi to the Orange Velodrome.
Romano further added that despite Tottenham holding an interest in the Atalanta star, the North London club had not launched a concrete offer yet.
That might be about to change if TMW’s late update is to be believed. The publication states that Malinovskyi is destined to leave Bergamo since his relationship with Gian Pero Gasperini has broken down.
The report claims that Spurs’ interest in the midfielder should be ‘carefully monitored’ and that the Premier League club ‘can soon begin’ negotiations for the player.
TMW add that Tottenham could begin talks by potentially offering Sergio Reguilon to Atalanta as part of a deal to sign Malinovskyi.
Spurs Web Opinion
I am convinced that we will sign another attacking player to replace Bryan Gil, who is likely to head out on loan. At this point, Malinovsky looks the likeliest target but with two weeks left to go in the transfer window, there is still time for a surprise move from Tottenham.
Spurs looked lack of creative ideas against Wolves, especially in the first half and desperately need an attack-minded midfielder.
