Tottenham and Genoa are still in talks over Radu Dragusin, the top center back for Genoa.
The club received €30 million after their initial verbal bid of €23 million was rejected.
Journalist Rudy Galetti of Sky Sports had earlier said that Spurs were preparing a second bid that would be closer to Genoa’s asking price in an effort to complete the transaction.
But according to the most recent report from writer Sacha Tavolieri, Tottenham’s amended offer of €25 million plus bonuses has also been rejected.
However, Tavolieri raises a possible obstacle for Napoli, another team interested in Dragusin, in the midst of this setback.
He claims that Dragusin sold his image rights to a third party, something the Italian side strongly objects to as they want all players to donate their image rights to the club.
Napoli may encounter difficulties as a result, which would provide Spurs another chance to make a stronger bid and complete the acquisition of the 21-year-old.
We are also making a lot out of the Dragusin agreement, given that we shifted our attention from Jean-Clair Todibo to him since Spurs did not want to engage in protracted talks with Nice.
It is useless to waste a few million dollars and possibly jeopardize the deal going back and forth if the manager has given the player approval.
