Saturday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport wasn’t very positive on Tottenham Hotspur’s swoop for Radu Dragusin.

It was explained that Spurs didn’t want to overspend on the 21-year-old because he would be seen as a squad player rather than a nailed-on starter for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

With Genoa trying to edge the transfer fee closer to €30m, and attempts even made to go above that, Gazzetta said Tottenham wouldn’t do anything ‘crazy’ and their offer was ‘unlikely to exceed €18-20m’.

Sunday’s edition of the same newspaper reports the Premier League club are ‘ready to offer’ €20m, but will need to raise that because Genoa want more.

Over at Corriere dello Sport they have things differently.

In their Sunday edition, it’s claimed ‘Tottenham present the offer’, and the amount is put at €26.6m.

Corriere dello Sport go further and say ‘The indecent offer has arrived’ from Spurs, who are ‘taking things seriously’. They put that at £23m/€26.6m.

Interestingly, the report states the offer has arrived through ‘lateral channels’, so intermediaries, and is ‘waiting to officially proceed’.

Napoli remain in the picture, but it’s thought that Tottenham simply have more financial power and if they push through and use that then the competition is over.
