Tottenham are expected to complete the signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on loan until the end of the season in the coming days.
He will join a one-season loan with an option to buy for £ 13million which will become an obligation if he plays a certain number of games, insists Sky in Italy.
Examining Harry Kane and that £ 160million Sun claim
Paratici, the club’s general manager of football, had discussions with Atalanta this week, also inquiring about defender Cristian Romero.
Romero has spent the last two seasons on loan with Juventus’ Atalanta. He’s still on Juve’s books, although Atalanta is set to trigger their € 16million (£ 13.8million) buyout clause soon.
He could then join Spurs for a higher fee, offering Atalanta a decent profit if they decide to sell him to the north London club.
Not only does Paratici have these deals to work out, but he must also try to convince Harry Kane – alongside Tottenham president Daniel Levy and new boss Nuno Espirito Santo – that he should stay in north London.
There have been rumors that Manchester City are ready to pay £ 160million for Kane, although the air at this speculation was cut, for the moment.
And now ABC Seville describe Tottenham and Paratici as being in a “veritable whirlwind of transfer market operations”.
Negotiations over a swap deal involving Erik Lamela and Sevilla winger Bryan Gil “are continuing their course but not at the speed expected” due to the sheer volume of deals the club are working on.
As Fabrizio Romano pointed out earlier, Lamela will head to La Liga with Gil arriving in England – but Spurs will also have to pay € 25million plus additions to secure the signing.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min has pledged his future at Tottenham by signing a new four-year contract and securing an exceptional pay raise.
Signing the deal, Son said: “It was already a great honor to play here for six years, the club have shown me enormous and enormous respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here.
“It’s like being at home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so happy to see the fans again soon.
