Fabrizio Romano provides-update on spurs transfers latest

Fabrizio Romano has said that Tottenham are expected to begin a new round of talks with Bayer Leverkusen for Edmond Taposoba this week.

Given the intense rumors tying both Tapsoba and Micky van de Ven with moves to N17 over the past month, it is fair to assume that many Spurs supporters are already pretty disgruntled by the club’s failure to recruit a left-sided center-back.

A number of sources, including Alasdair Gold of Football.London, have suggested that the Lilywhites consider the Leverkusen player as a more “readymade option” than the Wolfsburg defender. It has been widely believed over the past two weeks that Spurs will sign one of the two.

However, Spurs seem to have made more progress in the Van de Ven deal, with Football Insider claiming last week that the Dutchman has already agreed a five-year contract with Tottenham, who are now confident of striking an agreement on a fee with Wolfsburg.

Spurs will make fresh Tapsoba push this week

According to Romano, the North London team is still actively pursuing Tapsoba and is still hopeful of reaching a settlement with Leverkusen.

On the Caught Offside Debrief Podcast, the writer stated that “[Tottenham] will have fresh discussions with Bayer Leverkusen for Edmond Tapsoba next (this) week.

They will resume discussions with Bayer Leverkusen early the next week.According to my source, Tapsoba is their top choice, but he is also more expensive, therefore it’s crucial for Tottenham to know if they can come to an agreement on the asking price for Tapsoba.

It is clear that the only reason that Tottenham have not finalised the Van de Ven transfer is that the club still retain hope of striking a deal with Leverkusen for Tapsoba. 

However, Postecoglou might be getting a little impatient at the moment, given that pre-season is well underway and a crucial position has not yet been strengthened.
