Report reveals how Tottenham plan on using Tomiyasu
Tottenham Hotspurs plan to let Takehiro Tomiyasu tuck in to form a back-three next season, according to football.london.
The Athletic are claiming that Spurs are ‘working’ on a deal to sign the right-back. Tottenham are thought to have made an opening bid of £15.5m. New director Fabio Paratici is hoping to secure a move for less than £20m.
The publication are claiming that with Tomiyasu sitting back, it will allow Sergio Reguilon to bomb forward down the left-hand side.
TBR View: Tottenham already taking shape under Nuno amid Tomiyasu news
During his time with Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo became synonumous for playing a back-three/five.
The news surrounding how Spurs will potentially use the Japanese ace under the Portuguese is far from surprising.
Tomiyasu is far from the most attacking fullback as shown last season. The ace scored just twice and registered no assists in 31 Bundesliga games.
And at six foot two, he may well come to the club as another option at centre-half especially with Toby Alderweireld wanting to leave.
Tomiyasu could well be an versatile figure for Spurs, who will look to complete a bargain for the 22-year-old.
