Atalanta’s stance

Fabio Paratici, the new managing director of Spurs set his eyes on Romero. However, Atalanta have stayed put on the €55m price tag. Club CEO Percassi spoke that they view him as ‘one of the best centre-backs’ and will hold on for the right bid.

Atalanta CEO Percassi: “Gollini has serious chances to join Spurs. Romero? Tottenham interest is normal… but he’ll stay if we don’t receive the right bid, as he’s one of the best centre backs”. ⚪️ #THFC

Gollini deal is done. Talks ongoing but still no agreement for Romero.

About Cristian Romero

Cristian Romero is a product of Belgrano’s youth setup. He made his debut for the first-team in 2016. Genoa signed Romero in 2018. After making 27 appearances for the club, he caught the eye of the Old Lady. Juventus signed Romero in 2019 and loaned him back to Genoa for a season.

Juventus still did not seem convinced by Romero. Atalanta picked him on a two-season loan. However, Atalanta have mentioned that they will exercise the buy option in his contract. Hence, they are eligible to potential trade with Tottenham.

For a brilliant 2020-21 season, Romero was crowned as Serie A’s best defender. Romero was a part of the Argentina squad, which won the Copa America Final 2021.
