Tottenham is accelerating efforts to recruit Radu Dragusin this month and is in daily contact with his camp, sources have told Football Insider.
Spurs are prepared to make a formal offer for Genoa’s center back, as Football Insider (30 December) reported, following initial discussions about a possible deal.
Ange Postecoglou’s team is reportedly “calling every day” to finalize a deal before the end of the January transfer window, according to sources who spoke with Football Insider.
Spurs and the Serie A team are in the midst of negotiations, and it’s said that Dragusin is eager to join the Premier League.
Spurs have looked at a number of options to get his signature, including a loan, a permanent arrangement, and a loan-to-buy. They are optimistic that an agreement can be achieved.
But Genoa is waiting for a long-term agreement, having already turned down a loan offer from the north London team.
This season, the Romanian international has started every game for Genoa in all competitions. From the defensive line, he has also contributed one assist and two goals.
This season, Tottenham’s defense has been plagued by injuries, forcing Postecoglou to start men out of position.
Since early November, they have been without Micky van de Ven, and Cristian Romero is out for up to five weeks following his hamstring strain suffered last week (December 23) against Everton.
Tottenham is eager to finalize a move as soon as the window opens, and they are working hard to accomplish so in face of these significant absences.
