Match90mins has been informed by insiders that the club’s pursuit of Radu Dragusin, a defender for Genoa, is being spearheaded by former Tottenham director of football Fabio Paratici.



Editor Wayne Veysey disclosed on match90mins InsideTrack podcast that Paratici is “pulling the strings” for the team’s top January deal and that he is involved in a significant portion of Spurs’ January transaction.


The Italian is reportedly Daniel Levy’s preferred transfer guru despite his global FIFA ban and the arrival of recruitment chiefs Rob Mackenzie and Johan Lange in the autumn.


Tottenham’s attempt to get the Genoa player is thought to depend heavily on Paratici as he attempts to bring yet another player from the Italian league to North London.


In April of last year, Paratici left his position as director of football at Spurs following the denial of his appeal against a FIFA global ban.


He received a partial reduction in his 30-month ban due to his suspected role in financial mismanagement at Juventus, allowing him to resume his football career at a lesser level.


Several of Spurs’ most notable acquisitions in recent years, such as Dejan Kulusevski, Rodrigo Bentancur, Destiny Udogie, Pape Matar Sarr, and Guglielmo Vicario, have been made possible by Paratici.



Four of those players came from Serie A, a league that former Juventus manager Paratici is quite familiar with and has excellent ties with.


After defeating Bournemouth 3-1 on New Year’s Eve, Tottenham is currently fifth in the Premier League. They will take on Burnley in the FA Cup third round on Friday, January 5.
