Transfer News: Tottenham told to increase offer to €20m for Takehiro Tomiyasu

According to transfer news from Tuttosport (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur have been told to submit an increased offer of €20m to sign Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna FC.

Tomiyasu started out his career with Avispa Fukuoka in Japan. He arrived in Europe in January 2018, signing for Belgian outfit Sint-Truiden. Having impressed during his time with the club, the defender was signed by Bologna in the summer of 2019.

Since joining the Serie A outfit, Tomiyasu has been a regular in the side, making 63 appearances, in which he has scored and assisted three goals apiece. The 22-year-old, who is versatile enough to play at centre-back as well as at right-back with equal comfort, featured 33 times in the 2020/21 season.

Tomiyasu still has three years left on his contract with Bologna but is expected to make his way out this summer, with the club having already signed two new defenders in Adama Soumaoro and Kevin Bonifazi.

And, as per reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano (h/t Football.london), Tottenham have already made an opening bid of around €18m. However, Bologna have now informed the north London giants to increase their bid by a further €2m and submit an improved €20m offer to complete the deal for the Japanese international.

With Tottenham’s Premier League rivals Manchester United and West Ham United also showing an interest in securing the services of the 22-year-old, the club would be better off acting swiftly and securing a deal for the Bologna ace.

More Tottenham Hotspur News:

Tomiyasu is currently in his homeland, Japan, preparing for the Tokyo Olympics after being selected in the squad. A versatile operator with age on his side, the defender would be a smart addition to the Tottenham ranks. Hopefully, a deal is seen through as early as possible.
