Christian Romero will fly to London in the next 24 hours for the next leg of the move, after Tottenham agreed a fee of 47 million pounds with Atalanta in Serie A; The 23-year-old central defender of Argentina made 42 appearances in all competitions last season
Tottenham have agreed with Atalanta to sign Christian Romero.
The Spurs have increased their offer to 42.7 million pounds (50 million euros) plus bonuses, making a total package worth 47 million pounds (55 million euros) for the central defender of Argentina.
The 23-year-old Romero will fly to London in the next 24 hours to complete his move before negotiating personal terms for a five-year deal.
The proposed transfer will make it the second most expensive entry in the history of Tottenham after Tangi Ndombele, who joined for 54 million pounds in July 2019.
Romero made 42 appearances in all competitions last season, as Atalanta finished third in Serie A and became runners-up in the Italian Cup.
Atalanta has secured Juventus central defender Merich Demiral as Romero’s replacement.
Tottenham have already signed goalkeeper Pierluigi Golini on an initial long-term loan deal from Atalanta, with the option to make it a permanent deal.
