A number of reporters were yesterday evening claiming that Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on Atalanta’s Cristian Romero.

Gazzetta dello Sport, earlier claimed that Juventus defender Merih Demiral has emerged as a potential target for the Serie A side having expressed his hunger for regular first-team football.

There has been no secret that Tottenham are keen to bring in a new central defender who possesses leadership qualities during the current window (Football.London).

Here is a round-up of some of the reports involving Tottenham and their pursuit of the Atalanta defender this evening:

Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that Spurs have now ‘accelerated their efforts’ to land the Argentina international.

tYc Sports have reported that the 23-year-old is ‘very close’ to a move to Tottenham.

CalcioMercato are suggesting that there is confidence between all parties a deal will be completed.

Sky Italia’s Matteo Moretto believes that only an agreement between the two clubs is standing in the way of the deal being completed.

Argentine journalist César Luis Merlo has claimed Spurs have offered €40M (£34.1m) with a further €10M (£8.5m) in bonuses.

All signs seem to point that Spurs are indeed closing in on Romero, who has had a superb season on loan at Atalanta from Juventus and would be a welcome addition to the Spurs backline which struggled significantly during the previous campaign.
