Journalist provides update on Spurs' Takehiro Tomiyasu pursuit

Football London journalist Alasdair Gold has reported on his YouTube channel that he has been told by some involved in the potential deal involving Spurs and Takehiro Tomiyasu that they are confident that a deal will happen once the Olympics are over.

Of course, Tomiyasu appears to have been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time.

It has previously been reported that he had decided that he wanted to join Spurs. And personal terms have apparently been agreed.

But with Tomiyasu playing for Japan at the Olympics and Spurs seemingly pressing ahead with a move for Cristian Romero, some may have wondered whether a move is at all likely.

However, Gold has provided an update on the situation. And he suggested that many still expect Tomiyasu to join Spurs this summer.

“I’ve been speaking to some of the people involved in the Takehiro Tomiyasu potential deal and they’re confident that when the Olympics are done that Tottenham will sign him,” he said on his YouTube channel.

“Obviously, that remains to be seen. There’s probably a lot more to go and it will all depend on finances as well.”

Spurs moving for Tomiyasu could prove a shrewd piece of business

Tomiyasu would be a smart signing for Spurs. He can play at right-back and centre-back.

Previous reports hinted that Bologna want £17.1 million for the 22-year-old. So Spurs do not need to break the bank to bring him in.

And a resolution could now be close. Japan lost their semi-final tie with Spain on Tuesday.

His country will contest the Bronze medal match on Friday.

And once that is done, it should seemingly not be too long before Spurs find out whether they will indeed be welcoming the defender into their ranks this summer.
