Tottenham are rumoured to be in talks with Atlanta over a deal for Romero.
Despite the North London club reportedly having had an initial offer for the Argentine being turned down by Atalanta, sources from Italy have indicated that the two parties are getting closer and that an agreement may be reached soon.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have explained that if Romero successfully completes his move to Tottenham, it could open the door for Atalanta to sign Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral.
