Fulham join Tottenham Hotspur in the race for AS Roma’s Roger Ibanez
According to Italian outlet FirenzeViola.it, Tottenham Hotspur have been joined by English side Fulham in the race for talented Roma defender Roger Ibanez.
Throughout the month of June, various transfer links have consistently mentioned Tottenham as one of the frontrunners for Ibanez’s services. However, the Brazilian has still not made the move to North London.
Spurs could potentially utilize Ben Davies as part of a swap deal to secure Ibanez’s services. However, talks with Roma are not going to be easy unless the player pushes for a move from his side.
Fulham are now ready to enter the race for Ibanez’s coveted signature. It appears that the Cottagers initially had their sights set on securing Igor Julio from Fiorentina. Nevertheless, their pursuit of the Fiorentina star proved unsuccessful, prompting a shift in focus to the AS Roma centre-back.
For Tottenham, the prospect of signing a player of Roger Ibanez‘s calibre would undoubtedly bolster their defensive ranks. The Brazilian has showcased his talent and versatility during his time with AS Roma.
With Fulham now entering the race, Spurs may face stiffer competition in their pursuit of Ibanez. However, the allure of playing in the Premier League and potentially being part of Tottenham’s ambitious project under a new manager could sway the Brazilian’s decision in their favour.
If a swap deal involving Ben Davies were to materialize, it would add an intriguing dimension to the negotiations. Davies, an experienced left-back, could provide Roma with a reliable defensive option while strengthening Tottenham’s chances of securing Ibanez’s services.
Ultimately, the outcome of this transfer saga remains uncertain. While Fulham has emerged as a potential contender, Tottenham’s interest in Ibanez has been clear for some time. The decision rests in the hands of the Brazilian defender.
