Tottenham have offered £15.4million, while the Serie A club wants £17.1million, claimed Calciomercato.

Here is what some Spurs fans have been saying on Twitter:

Have Spurs already found Alderweireld replacement?

Tomiyasu has plied his trade for Bologna since 2019, when he joined from Belgium’s Sint-Truiden for a reported £6.3m.

He has made 63 appearances in red-and-blue, registering three goals and three assists.

In addition, Tomiyasu has won 23 caps for Japan and is set to compete at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

Prior to joining Sint-Truiden, he came through the ranks at hometown club Avispa Fukuoka.

As a right-footed centre-back who can also play at right-back, Tomiyasu could potentially replace Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgian is reportedly looking to leave Spurs this summer.
