Transfer News: Tottenham revive interest in Takehiro Tomiyasu

According to transfer news from The Telegraph (h/t Express), Tottenham are set to revive their interest in Bologna defender Takehiro Tomiyasu. There is the belief that a deal can be conducted ahead of next week’s deadline by reigniting the talks that were held prior to the Olympics.

Spurs had an uphill task this season and that was to fix their crumbling defence. Add to that, Tody Alderweireld’s departure and the club were forced to look at quite a few options. One of the earlier names Spurs looked into was Takehiro Tomiyasu of Bologna. He is a versatile operator, capable of playing as a central defender and right-back.

Takehiro Tomiyasu would be a solid addition at Tottenham Hotspur.

However, with the Olympics taking place, the 22-year-old Tomiyasu travelled with his national side and a move had to be put on hold. In the meantime, Spurs did not waste any time in going after alternative targets such as Christian Romero. It was not long before the Argentine was lining up in the white of Spurs.

Now, Spurs are hoping to revive the deal for Tomiyasu and pick it up from where they left it prior to the Olympics. His versatility is one of the reasons Spurs are keen on him. The main issue back then was the structure of payments which Spurs wanting more of a spread-out plan while Bologna wanted the full amount upfront. Nonetheless, there is the confidence that a deal can be struck in the remaining few days.

Perhaps Tottenham are doing the right thing by going after Tomiyasu again. He can be a useful asset to have in defence to cover in two positions. It will still need both clubs to solve the payment issues and that too in limited time.
