“Cautious optimism”: A reporter for Sky Sports reports a good transfer update he just received about Spurs.

Since the Dutchman’s injury in November, Tottenham Hotspur has been without a striker, leaving them limited on choices in the summer. Ange Postecoglou, the manager, has led Tottenham into a respectable position in the Premier League despite this setback.

Due to Cristian Romero’s struggles with injuries and suspension, Spurs have turned to players like Emerson Royal to fill in at center back. Consequently, it would seem that the north London team is prioritizing the signing of a second defender. Dragusin appears to be the man who could open doors at Spurs, although a contract has not yet been finalized.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham want to sign a centre-back within the next few days as

In the latter part of the season, they hope to get some traction.A fresh round of negotiations between Genoa and Spurs is planned in the hopes of reaching a deal for Dragusin, with Postecoglou keen to get his signature.

In December of last year, journalist Paul Brown told GIVEMESPORT that Dragusin was the most likely defender Tottenham will add in the January transfer window.The 21-year-old and Postecoglou’s charges have already reached a personal agreement; so, all that’s left to do is agree on a money before he starts playing in the Premier League.

Sheth previously revealed to GIVEMESPORT that Daniel Levy is eager to support Postecoglou during the January transfer window, and that the chairman would truly be making a statement if he were to sign a new defender in the first few days of the month. It appears that the English team is making progress with their negotiations, but there may be worry about some late competition from Catalan giants Barcelona. Reports in Italy suggest that they may present Spurs with an offer that is comparable to theirs.

Dharmesh Sheth – Tottenham are optimistic about Dragusin

Sheth has confirmed that Spurs are in talks with Genoa for Dragusin, with the Italian outfit demanding £30m to allow him to depart in the winter window. The Sky Sports reporter adds that Tottenham are hoping to pay closer

around £20 million, but there’s a cautious sense of hope that a deal will close. Sheth said in an interview with GIVEMESPORT…

“They and Genoa are in negotiations. Genoa values him at roughly £30 million, so there appears to be a valuation discrepancy at the moment. Spurs are planning to spend about £20 million. However, under such circumstances, if a deal is possible, it will usually be compromised somewhere in the middle, at the £25–£26 million range. Thus, I believe that there is cautious confidence that Tottenham could be able to complete this deal.”

Tottenham facing difficult test

As we head into the second half of the Premier League season, Postecoglou is still currently without van de Ven and James Maddison, who have already missed a large portion of the campaign. Although their injury troubles have improved of late, Spurs are about to face one of the most difficult spells of the term.

Postecoglou announced in December that Heung-min Son, Pape Matar Sarr, and Yves Bissouma will be traveling to play in the Asia Cup or the Africa Cup of Nations this month on behalf of their respective nations. There is no denying that Spurs would be less without the aforementioned trio because they have been essential components of Postecoglou’s strategy this season.

Levy wants to support the Australian manager in the transfer market for this reason in addition to the fact that they obviously need more players to handle the upcoming weeks. On Friday, Spurs take on Burnley in the FA Cup. The following weekend, they play Manchester United in the Premier League.
