Tottenham target Radu Dragusin available for £26m in January
Tottenham Hotspur are among the Premier League clubs closely monitoring the rise of Romanian defender Radu Dragusin.
The 21-year-old’s stellar performances for Genoa have garnered attention from other English clubs, including Arsenal and Newcastle.
Having made his move to Genoa permanent in the summer after a successful loan spell from Juventus that contributed to their promotion from Serie B, Dragusin has been a mainstay in the heart of Genoa’s defence this season.
He has featured in all 12 league matches this season. Dragusin‘s impressive displays have not only solidified his place in the team but have also sparked interest from top-tier English sides including Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle United. That is according to TuttoMercatoWeb via Express.
The player still has over three-and-a-half years left on his contract with Genoa (Transfermarkt), reflecting the Italian club’s desire to retain his services. However, the same report also suggests that a potential “gentlemen’s agreement” may be in place, allowing Dragusin to leave if an offer in the ballpark of £26m materialises.
The North London club’s defensive concerns, exacerbated by recent injuries and suspensions, highlight the urgency of reinforcing the squad, and Dragusin’s potential availability presents an intriguing opportunity.
The price tag may seem steep, but considering the inflationary nature of the transfer market and the potential long-term benefits of securing a promising young talent, it could be a prudent investment for Tottenham.

Dragusin’s ability to adapt and thrive in Serie A, a league that needs a lot of defensive solidity, at such a young age suggests a player with considerable potential and room for growth, aligning with Tottenham’s strategy under manager Ange Postecoglou.
As the January transfer window inches closer, the speculation around Dragusin’s future is expected to intensify, and Tottenham fans will certainly be watching to see if the club can secure the services of this versatile player who can fit into any role in the backline ranging from left-back, his natural centre-back position and right-back as well.
