'Total blessing in disguise': Some Spurs fans praise Nuno for 'excellent' £23m transfer decision
Nuno Espirito Santo was reportedly key to Tottenham pulling out of the race for Olympique Lyonnais defender Joachim Andersen.
At the start of the window, the former Fulham loanee was one of Tottenham’s top defensive target. However, the appointments of Fabio Paratici and Nuno have seen transfer plans change.
As reported by Sky Sports News, Atalanta star Cristian Romeo is now Tottenham’s main target for centre-back. Spurs have already signed the Argentine’s teammate in Pierluigi Gollini.
Moreover, the north London side have this week confirmed the signing of Bryan Gil from Sevilla. Furthermore, Erik Lamela will head to Spain as part of the deal.
Indeed, it has been a promising summer so far for Nuno and his team.
Moreover, supporters on social media are delighted with how the former Wolves manager is going about the club’s transfer business.
Here’s what some Tottenham fans had to say on Twitter about Nuno personally ending the club’s interest in Andersen…
