Spurs transfer reports: Some fans react to Takehiro Tomiyasu links
A number of Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun claiming that the club are confident of signing Takehiro Tomiyasu in the transfer window.
Tottenham may still be looking for their next manager. But it appears that Fabio Paratici is still pressing ahead with his transfer plans.
And perhaps the first signing of Paratici’s spell could come in the form of Tomiyasu.
Tomiyasu made 31 appearances in Serie A with Bologna last season. He predominantly played at centre-back, but also featured regularly at right-back.
With doubts over Serge Aurier’s future persisting, and no centre-back pairing really establishing themselves last season, it appears to be a smart move to target the 22-year-old.
And it seems that many of the Spurs fans are delighted with the links with the youngster.
Admittedly, some seemed underwhelmed. He is not a household name in England at this stage of his career.
And the fee involved in a potential move hardly suggests that all of Tottenham’s defensive issues are likely to be addressed by his arrival.
However, those who have seen him a little more regularly believe that he is a player with a lot of potential.
‘Gamble worth taking’: Spurs fans react to Tomiyasu transfer reports
He reads the game well, and actually offers a little threat in the final third.
And given the finances involved in a potential move, some are struggling to see a downside.
With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
Like what i’m reading and seeing on Tomiyasu and at 22 if Paratici knows him from his time in Seria A I think it’s a gamble worth taking.

Solid defender. Good with both feet.

Brilliant defender both footed valued around 20 million could be a bargain
