What new Tottenham signing Radu Dragusin’s disciplinary record looks like

Agent of Radu Dragusin says he doesn’t wish to leave despite Tottenham interest

Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Radu Dragusin from Genoa has encountered a potential hurdle as the player’s agent issues a significant warning to the club.

The Romanian international has seen himself linked with a move to North London since the early weeks of November. He is a strong, no-nonsense centre-back, similar to Romero.

Despite Ange Postecoglou’s urgent need for a new centre-back, especially with key players like Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven sidelined due to injuries, Dragusin’s agent has indicated that the player is not considering a mid-season departure from Genoa.

Here is what Dragusin‘s agent had to say via football.london:

“In any case, Radu is not thinking about leaving Genoa mid-season, it would be like leaving some unfinished business for him. I have had contact with clubs in the Premier League, including Tottenham and others, but at this moment he does not want to leave.”

While these remarks might suggest that Dragusin is committed to staying at Genoa for the time being, it’s important to consider the dynamics of transfer negotiations. Agents often use such statements to leverage better contracts for their clients, both in terms of wages at their current club and potential agreements with interested parties.

For Tottenham, the warning adds a layer of complexity to their pursuit of Dragusin. Postecoglou’s desire for a new centre-back in the early weeks of the winter window has become more challenging if the player is hesitant about a mid-season move.

The situation could prompt negotiations to focus on the player’s preferences, the potential financial package, and assurances about his role at Tottenham.
