Meanwhile, GiveMeSport claimed on Wednesday that Tosin Adarabioyo is no longer a priority for Tottenham, with Schuurs now emerging as the club’s top centre-back target.
Romano has now also backed up Spurs’ interest in the 23-year-old, stating that the Serie A star is one of the names being discussed internally by the club.
The journalist further adds that the Torino centre-back wishes to move to the Premier League before the window slams shut.
Tottenham’s transfer targets might have changed following Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich. I can see Spurs now reigniting their interest in Edmond Tapsoba now that their transfer kitty has increased substantially.
Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet has been linked with a move away from the Spanish club in recent weeks.
The 28-year-old Frenchman was on loan at Tottenham last season and he did well for the London club.
There were rumours that Tottenham could look to sign in permanently upon the expiry of his loan deal. But the North London giants decided to send him back to his parent club.
Lenglet is unwanted at Barcelona and the Spanish outfit are looking to get his wages off their books.
Barcelona are hoping to finalise his transfer very soon and Tottenham could now accelerate their pursuit. The player already has ‘an agreement in principle’ with Spurs as per SPORT.
The North London outfit have sanctioned the departure of Harry Kane and they have the funds to bring in the necessary additions now.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can get a deal for Lenglet across the line.
It is no secret that Spurs need to add more quality and depth to the defensive unit. Although they have signed Micky van de Ven and Ashley Phillips, they could use another central defender and Lenglet would be a useful option.
The 28-year-old knows the club having played for them last season and he is well-settled in the Premier League. He could make an immediate impact at Tottenham next season.
Ange Postecoglou prefers a free-flowing attacking style of football and he will need a reliable defensive unit at his disposal. Lenglet will certainly help Tottenham tighten up defensively.
Spurs conceded 63 goals in the league last season and improving their defence will be crucial to their hopes of securing Champions League qualification.
