Tottenham Hotspur will move for Kurt Zouma, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Nikola Milenkovic if they fail to land Cristian Romero, Fabrizio Romano has reported.
Tottenham are pushing to sign Romero from Atalanta, but they are yet to complete a deal.
And it seems that Tottenham have alternatives in mind, if they fail to get a signing over the line.
Spurs could move to land three new players for the same price as Romero, as they look to bolster their defence.
Interestingly Chelsea’s Kurt Zouma is said to be one of Tottenham’s back-up choices.
Whether Chelsea would do business with Spurs remains to be seen, but the French central defender – who has now won the Premier League twice – is said to be on Tottenham’s radar.
Zouma was actually linked with Spurs when Jose Mourinho was in charge, and the former Tottenham boss was a big fan of the £21 million man, labelling him the New Desailly (West London Sport).
Milenkovic also would offer Spurs a potentially strong option in central defence, despite not being as expensive as Romero.
The Serbian has impressed with Fiorentina, where his performances have earned a great deal of credit.
Tomiyasu, meanwhile, has been linked with Spurs throughout the summer transfer window so far.
The Bologna defender is thought to be keen on a move to Spurs, and can play at either right-back or in central defence.
