Nuno in the driving seat

However, it is now claimed that Romero is actually Nuno’s first choice.

Appealing signing

It is easy to see why the new Tottenham boss is seemingly so set on the 23-year-old too.

Romero is young enough to be developed, but he has already proven his class over the past season.

Romero was one of the very best players in Serie A last term, scooping the award for the top defender.

He is blessed with good pace, but is also comfortable on the ball, and he is strong in the air.

Romero looks to be quite an upgrade on any of Tottenham’s current central defensive options.

And if Spurs were to get a transfer over the line then Nuno and Paratici would surely be delighted with their transfer work.
