‘Completely new name in the list’ – insider Romano confirms Paratici is working on unexpected deal for CB

    Tottenham’s June business has been the most proactive in the Premier League so far, with several key arrivals now completed. However, most fans expect the necessary additions in the weakest Spurs line – defense.

    Alessandro Bastoni, Josko Gvardiol and Pau Torres were the most regularly reported names of the recent weeks, but all three targets still seem to far from sitting down at the negotiating table. In an interview with Wettfreunde, Romano explained the problems surrounding the prospect of bringing the mentioned trio at N17.

    Romano said:

    “We know how difficult it is to negotiate with Leipzig. In terms of top goals: Pau Torres was on the verge of moving to Tottenham a year ago. It could happen this summer, depending on the negotiations with Giovani Lo Celso. But so far there is nothing concrete. We heard rumours about a possible move for Torres a few days or weeks ago.

    “But at the moment there is nothing in sight. Alessandro Bastoni was a top target, but he remains with Inter. Milan Škriniar would have the opportunity to leave. Maybe to move to PSG, who are ahead at the moment. But Bastoni is a really complicated matter.

    Fabrizio Romano adds a new name into Spurs target list. According to him, Tottenham have been watching Mohamed Simakan from RB Leipzig for a long time.

    The 22-year-old centre-back is under contract with Leipzig until June 2026. He has been a regular starter for the club during last season, having appeared 40 times across all competitions, including four games in the Champions League. The rising star, who can also operate on the right flank of defense is valued at £20m by Transfermarkt.
