Report: Spurs have agreed personal terms with Takehiro Tomiyasu but still short of £20m asking-price
Spurs have reportedly agreed terms with Japanese international Takehiro Tomiyasu, but as yet, have failed to put up the required asking price.
Calciomercato claims that while Spurs have come to an agreement with Tomiyasu, Bologna have yet to receive a bid they deem acceptable.
The Italians are thought to be seeking as much as 22m Euros for the Japanese star. That means Spurs need to pay between £19-20m for the 22-year-old.
Reports previously have suggested that Spurs have bid around £15m for the Bologna star. However, that is some way short of what the Serie A side want.
Tomiyasu has emerged as top target for Tottenham and their new transfer chief, Fabio Paratici. The club are known to be in the hunt for new defenders, meaning the 23-cap star fits the bill perfectly.
It’s believed Bologna also want bonuses including in any deal.
Surely a matter of time?
This deal has gone on for some time now and Spurs are in danger of following rivals Arsenal in terms of protracted talks.
But surely Tomiyasu will be a Spurs player before long? It’s hard to see the club haggling too much over a few million, in all honesty.
With only weeks until the new season, Spurs and their new manager Nuno Santo need some new players in the ranks. There’s no point in Levy and Paratici haggling, it simply has to get done when it comes to Tomiyasu.
