It was sometime ago that reports in Italy claimed that personal terms had been agreed with the Bologna defender.

However, the Olympics delayed discussions. Nevertheless, there remained a confidence that the deal would be completed once the Games were over.

And it does indeed appear that Spurs are making progress once again.

According to Calciomercato.It, the two clubs have a rough agreement over a £17 million move for the Japan international.

Tomiyasu meanwhile, still wishes to join Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

One final obstacle is all that reportedly remains. Calciomercato.It claims that the terms of the payment are still yet to be decided.

Could Paratici produce another inspired deal as Spurs continue Tomiyasu talks?

Fabio Paratici has done some brilliant work this summer. But perhaps, no deal has proved more inspired than the move for Cristian Romero.

It turns out Spurs have taken the Argentinian on an initial loan. The deal will become permanent next summer.

That means Tottenham have landed Serie A’s best defender last term on a deal which sees them pay little in this window.

So perhaps Paratici will be hoping to do similar with Tomiyasu, and not necessarily pay the full fee up front.

Tomiyasu looks to be a potential gem. He is only 22. But he can play at centre-back or right-back. And he boasts serious pace.

He has already made 60 appearances in Serie A. So a move looks to be a potential no-brainer for Spurs.

They look to be incredibly close to striking a deal. And with one obstacle remaining, surely fans can expect the youngster’s arrival at some stage.
