According to TuttoMercatoWeb, rumoured Tottenham target Alessio Romagnoli is willing to take a pay cut in order to extend his stay with AC Milan.

Romagnoli is now into the final six months of his contract at the San Siro and the Italy international is alleged to be one of the central defenders on Antonio Conte’s radar.

Journalist Graeme Bailey claimed on Planet Sport last week that the defender had rejected Milan’s latest contract offer and is ‘expecting an offer’ from Spurs.

However, TMW have now contradicted that claim, explaining that Romagnoli’s preference is to stay at the Serie A giants.

The report explains that the centre-back currently earns around €6m (£5m) per year and he is willing to sign a new deal worth just €3.5m (£2.9m) per year plus bonuses in order to continue with the Rossoneri. 

However, Milan’s latest proposal is only thought to have reached €3m (£2.5m) per season, with the club said to be showing no signs of increasing their offer.

Therefore, as things stand, there remains a question mark over Romagnoli’s future

Spurs Web Opinion

Given that Spurs are expected to be in the market for a left-sided centre-back, a move for Romagnoli would certainly make sense. If the 26-year-old does not sign a new contract with Milan, perhaps the North Londoners would prefer to wait until the summer and snap him up on a free transfer.
