Cristian Romero remains the main target for Tottenham Hotspur and Monday brought us several positive updates in their pursuit of the centre-back.

Fabio Paratici has ‘insisted a lot in trying to buy’ the Atalanta star and the defender is now ‘getting closer and closer’ to moving to the Premier League.

That’s according to Calciomercato, who say the efforts made by the north London club and their chief are paying off as the two sides ‘seem to be close’ to reaching an agreement.

Romero’s desire is to try a new adventure in England and his current club are ready to fulfil his wish.

Spurs are set to offer €50m plus bonuses and the Argentina international’s sale will help the Serie A side make an ‘important capital gain’, which is needed to buy his replacement.

They further state: ‘An agreement now in the pipeline, with the possible white smoke expected in the next few hours’.

Meanwhile, TuttoMercatoWeb claim ‘decisive hours’ for the Copa América winner’s transfer to Tottenham.

That’s because Nuno Espírito Santo’s side ‘plan to formalise the last offer’ on Tuesday so that they can complete Romero’s signing.

Even though the details of the proposal aren’t mentioned, TMW add today will be the ‘decisive day’ for Spurs to seal the deal for the defender.

Atalanta, down at their end, have already started work to sign the South American’s replacement. This is also an indication there’s desire from all parties to conclude Romero’s sale to Tottenham.
