Sandro delivers three-word Instagram verdict as Tottenham reportedly close in on Copa America star

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing in on the double signing of Atalanta stars Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero. Indeed, a move for Gollini is likely to go through in the next few days. Romero is also a target for Tottenham – and ex-Spurs ace Sandro has reacted on Instagram.

The Daily Mail report that Gollini, an ex-Manchester United academy player and former Villa goalkeeper, will join Tottenham on loan. Spurs have the option of another season, or a permanent £13million deal. But he is not the only Atalanta player Spurs are looking to sign this summer.

An enquiry has been made to sign Romero – who was excellent for Atalanta on loan from Juventus last season. He has also just won the Copa America with Argentina. Football London say he will sign permanently before being sold for profit – around £52million. Alasdair Gold says Spurs talks are advanced.

Is Romero worth £52million for Tottenham and what has Sandro said?

That is a huge sum. It would make Romero the club’s second most-expensive signing ever, behind Tanguy Ndombele. So, Spurs have got to get it right and Romero is a top, top defender. He is just 23, defensively and technically gifted, and boasts massive resale value.

Is he worth £52million? That might be a bit of a stretch. But certainly, if Spurs can get Romero for a fee between £35million and £40million, then they are laughing. Certainly, that sentiment is shared by ex-Spurs ace Sandro, who delivered a five-word verdict on Instagram.
