Serie A is often lauded as the league of extraordinary defenders. To excel among the best is a massive feat to be achieved at such a young age. This further cements the fans’ faith in Ange Postecoglou’s decision to sign the youngster from Genoa.

Dragusin’s impact on the Spurs’ defensive setup

The reason for Spurs’ downfall following a strong start was their defensive shortcomings. Micky Van de Ven’s injury combined with Cristian Romero’s indiscipline hurt the club where it mattered the most.

The Aussie manager was forced to turn to his part-timers and versatile players to fill the void. However, the gamble didn’t pay off as the club started dropping points at a scary pace. The need for a defender was imminent and thus the manager pushed for the Dragusin move.

Genoa received €30m for the defender. The deal exists until June 2029. The Romanian international is expected to start his Premier League campaign almost immediately. Especially now that the Spurs will be without their skipper Son-Heung Min, who is fulfilling his national duty.

Ragu Dragusin is a fearless defender who is often front-footed. While such aggression would be an asset for the team, they surely would be hoping the 21-year-old won’t be following Romero’s footsteps.
