Some Spurs fans rejoice as Fabrizio Romano posts 'sensational' update on target who 'wants to join' club
Tottenham supporters are buzzing over Fabrizio Romano’s latest update on defender Takehiro Tomiyasu.
The Sky Sports Italia journalist took to Twitter to post that that Spurs are now leading the race for the Serie A star. Moreover, Tomiyasu ‘wants to join’ the north London side.
Spurs face competition from Atalanta for the Japanese international. However, it appears that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are firmly in the driving seat to sign Tomiyasu.
The 22-year-old is one of the highest-rated defenders currently playing in Italy. Tomiyasu is accomplished at both right-back and centre-back, and for Tottenham, this suits what they are looking for this summer perfectly.
Spurs are looking for extra cover in central defence as well as quality at right fullback. Serge Aurier is likely to leave the club this summer. Whilst Matt Doherty was unimpressive in his first year with Tottenham.
Indeed, Tomiyasu could be the north London side’s first signing this summer. And supporters on social media were buzzing with the news from Fabrizio Romano that the defender is keen to join the club.
Here’s what some fans had to say about Tottenham being one step closer to signing Tomiyasu on Twitter…

YESSSS TOMI MY SON!!! Slow as an ox but has a lot of potential to be a stalwart center back. https://t.co/6i5bAcRatt— Rex🏴 (@ThatRexGuyAgain) July 11, 2021

As well as a defender, Tottenham are keen on signing an attacker this summer. Moreover, the future of Harry Kane remains in the air as the Spurs star continues to push for a move away from the north London side.
With Euro 2020 ending this weekend, though, Kane’s future will likely be resolved in the coming weeks before the start of the new Premier League season.
