Could this open up a possible departure? There is still plenty of time left in the window.
Romero absence explained
Tottenham managed to bring in Argentinian defender Cristian Romero from Atalanta this summer in a deal which could rise to as high as 55 million euros.
However he was absent from the final match of the Mind Series in the 1-0 win over Arsenal, but he did attend the game and clapped the fans with his new teammates.
It is understood that Romero is still recovering from a knee injury suffered at the end of last season.
This means he could miss the start of the Premier League season and with Toby Alderweireld being sold, Eric Dier and Davison Sanchez are likely to be the starting pair unless a signing is made before then.
