Atalanta have made a bid for Tottenham-linked defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The two clubs have been linked with the Japan international over the last week. Both clubs are in talks with Bologna over a transfer for the ace.

However, the Lilywhites have the edge over their rivals. The right-back is open to a move to the Premier League, according to reports.

As a matter of fact, Spurs were said to be ‘confident’ over sealing a deal for the centre-back.

TBR View: Tottenham need to work overtime to convince Tomiyasu amid Atalanta bid

The club’s need for defensive reinforcement this summer has been a covered extensively.

Last season was a painful watch, especially on the final day of last season where the side conceded two penalties.

Tomiyasu would be a great signing, however, Tottenham need to work overtime amid a bid from Atalanta.

The Italians have improved over the last few years and will compete in a second successive season in the Champions League next season. Their bid may well be an attractive prospect for the player already in Italy.
