Harry Redknapp has spoken about Spurs’ reported pursuit of Cristian Romero to talkSPORT.
Tottenham have been heavily linked with the Argentina international for weeks.
And the latest speculation suggests Spurs are effectively on the home straight.
Redknapp, speaking to talkSPORT on Wednesday morning, says he’s been told that Romero is a quality player.
“They have got a new sporting director (Fabio Paratici) that’s going to be responsible for bringing the players in,” said Redknapp (3/8/21, 7:40am).
“It looks like he’s going to go into the Italian market. That’s the market he probably knows.
“It looks like they are trying to get the boy from Atalanta, the centre-back, they tell me he’s a very good player.
“A few people have said that he’s ‘very good’.”
Romero came through the ranks at Argentine club Belgrano.
He made just 18 competitive appearances before stepping up to Europe.
The 6ft centre-back linked up with Genoa in 2018 and made a name for himself with the Grifone.
