Medical staff anticipates Tottenham-linked player to clear the La Liga giants’ medical after the Romano update.
According to Dr Rajpal Brar, Arthur Vermeeren, a midfielder for Royal Antwerp, should have no trouble passing his physical despite rumors linking him to Atletico Madrid and Tottenham.
On December 26, The Sun said that Spurs were planning a £25 million bid for the 18-year-old and thought they could get him before Arsenal.
On January 25, nevertheless, Fabrizio Romano revealed that the boy had traveled to Madrid with his lawyer and girlfriend in order to finalize his transfer to Atletico.
The injury expert thinks that because of his advanced age, the Belgian will adjust to a new team more quickly than someone who is accustomed to a foreign league.
His medical will be evaluated for long-term problems like cardiac problems and excessive wear and tear.
Dr. Brar, a sports scientist and physical therapist, spoke exclusively with Tottenham News about Vermeeren’s play, stating: “Vermeeren has been playing in a league with much less intensity than the Premier League.”
It’s not like he’s acclimated to living there, and he’s only eighteen, so moving to England might not be all that tough for him.
“They [medical personnel] will be searching for any major difficulties that could have a long-term effect on his profession, such heart-related disorders, excessive wear and tear that is alarming, etc.
“His injury history does not indicate that he will experience any health problems.”
The best Premier League teams have reportedly been keeping an eye on the midfield player, as Chelsea has reportedly deployed scouts to monitor him.
Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich are the other teams rumored to be interested in signing him.
But unless there’s a dramatic last-minute twist to his move to Atletico, they’re all expected to miss out on his services.
He has made 21 league starts this season and is already a vital member of Antwerp’s squad despite only being 18 years old.
In other Tottenham Hotspur news, there are rumors that one of the players may be absent longer than anticipated due to a setback in his recuperation.
