As you know, Tottenham are trying to sign Cristian Romero from Atalanta thanks to a mutual desire of Nuno Espirito Santo and Fabio Paratici to work with the Argentine.

The director of football knows the centre-back well from his time at Juventus, and therefore is doing his all to try and bring him to London, fully aware of the talent the player possesses.

Offers have reportedly been made, with the latest said to be ‘monstrous’, but no agreement has been reached just yet.

Corriere di Bergamo are the latest to provide an update on the matter, with it claimed Atalanta are ‘still confident’ in reaching a ‘solution’ with Tottenham regarding the transfer.

Their information is that Spurs have ‘already offered €45m + bonuses’ for the Argentina international, but the Serie A side ‘would like certainties beyond €50m’.

While Barcelona are mentioned, since Lionel Messi would like him in Spain, it’s made clear the La Liga side ‘lack resources at this stage’.

This means Atalanta ‘are still waiting for a move by the English and Fabio Paratici’, meaning the ball is in Tottenham’s court.
