A “most likely” January signing for Tottenham Hotspur that supporters “might not be quite so well aware of” has been alluded to by journalist Paul Brown.


Postecoglou wants to join Spurs as a center-back.

Spurs’ obvious lack of depth in defense has been made abundantly clear by the absences of Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven; manager Ange Postecoglou has even been compelled to use Emerson Royal and Ben Davies as a makeshift duo.

With a hamstring strain, Romero recently joined van de Ven on the sidelines. Spurs lost their first game without the Argentine in weeks as a result.


Romero’s significance to Postecoglou’s defense was underscored by Tottenham’s 4-2 loss to Brighton last month. The Lilywhites also struggled during Romero’s one-month suspension.


The North Londoners are obviously in desperate need of a backup center-back, which has led to connections with several of the best and brightest young defensive players in both Europe and America.


According to reports, Spurs have discussed a deal for Jean-Clair Todibo, the defender for OGC Nice, who is possibly their most frequently touted possibility.


But there are also less well-known names in the mix, such as Radu Dragusin, the star of Genoa. The Romanian has had a tremendous season in Italy, to the point that Tottenham has expressed serious interest in him. However, despite his proposed new contract with Genoa, reports claim he may still go.


“Most likely” Dragusin signing with the Spurs, according to Brown

In a “behind the scenes” update, Brown states that Dragusin is a highly likely inclusion to N17 come wintertime, citing his projected move to Tottenham.


The journalist goes on to say that Dragusin is the “most likely” player Spurs to sign in January, calling the 21-year-old “amazing” and the simplest player to pry from his team.

“Dragusin at Genoa is a name that Spurs fans might not be quite so familiar with,” Brown told GiveMeSport.


“I believe he may be the simplest to acquire out of all the names the Spurs are considering. The most likely person they bring in is him.


“They are searching for a center back who is under 26 years old, has talent, and will develop. Despite his youth, Dragusin has had an incredible season in Italy. He also plays for a club that is somewhat insolvent.


Spurs could certainly take advantage of the connections that exist behind the scenes, in my opinion. I wouldn’t be shocked if he ended up playing in January at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.”


Under Genoa manager Alberto Gilardino, Dragusin has been a vital pillar of the team, starting 17 Serie A games, and even contributing a goal and an assist. In addition to his age and possible £26 million price tag, chairman Daniel Levy finds this transfer to be extremely alluring.
