    Revealed: When Cristian Romero is set to arrive in North London to complete Spurs switch

     

    An insight into the imminent nature of Atalanta star Cristian Romero’s transfer to Tottenham Hotspur has, on Thursday, been forthcoming.

    Recent weeks have of course seen links between Spurs and Argentinian stopper Romero ramp up in a major way.

    This comes with new Lilywhites boss Nuno Espirito Santo – on the back of Toby Alderweireld’s surprise departure – on the lookout for reinforcements at the heart of his backline.

    To this point, the likes of Jules Kounde, Kurt Zouma and Nikola Milenkovic have all been tipped as potential arrivals in North London.

    Romero, though, is understood to remain the firm ‘priority’ of Daniel Levy and co., with the ex-Juventus man fresh off the back of something of a breakout season in Serie A, backed up by Copa America glory with his country.

    And, as outlined above, if the latest word doing the rounds in the European media on Thursday is anything to go by, then it appears that Tottenham, imminently, are set to get their man.

    As confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Juventus’ Merih Demiral, Romero’s long-touted replacement at Atalanta, has this afternoon completed his medical with La Dea.

    The Turk will make the move to Bergamo on loan for the season, with the deal including an option to buy.

    Such a move, in turn, will open the door for Romero to depart, a development which could be forthcoming as soon as Thursday.

    Romano adds that the highly-regarded defender is primed to fly out to North London ‘later today’, ahead of putting pen to paper on a contract with Spurs, in a €55 million deal:
