Tottenham Hotspur have finally agreed a deal to sign Cristian Romero, according to Argentinian football journalist Cesar Luis Merlo.

What a brilliant signing the 23-year-old will be for Tottenham.

€55 million (£47 million) is outstanding value for someone who will surely go on to become one of the very best centre-backs in the game.

Romero

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo was desperate to bolster his central defensive ranks with Toby Alderweireld leaving the club.

Cristian Romero a sensational addition for Tottenham

In 31 Serie A outings during a loan spell with Atalanta last season, Romero averaged two tackles, 3.1 interceptions and 2.2 clearances per game.

He also won an average of 3.6 aerial duels per match during those appearances.

The South American is also very comfortable with the ball at his feet.

He made 42.2 passes per game on average and recorded a very impressive completion rate of 86.2%.

Romero seems to be ideally suited to playing Premier League football.

He is a tenacious tackler and really plays with his heart on his sleeve.

If Merlo has got this one spot on and Romero is north London bound, Tottenham have got themselves a seriously good player.
