Atalanta accept €55m Spurs bid for Cristian Romero

Atalanta have reportedly accepted a bid from Tottenham for centre-back Cristian Romero.

The Argentine has been Spurs’ top centre-back target this summer and they have now got their man.

That’s according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who says Atalanta have accepted Spurs’ official bid of €50m plus €5m add ons for the 23-year-old.

Barcelona were thought to be challenging Spurs for Romero, but Romano confirmed that the Catalans have never been in the frame.

Former Spurs goalkeeper Paul Robinson is an admirer of Romero, but says the club still need to look to make further signings, as they lack leadership following the departure of Toby Alderweireld.

“You have to trust Paratici’s knowledge of the Italian market,” Robinson said. “In that field he is an expert so he will know if a deal is good value or not.

“A lot of people won’t know a lot about Romero. I watched him in the Champions League a couple of times last season and I was impressed. He looks like a top-class player so it will be interesting to see if that one gets over the line.

“Spurs need leaders though. I don’t know if there is a language barrier or whether Romero speaks good English but they need someone who is an organiser back there.”

Meanwhile, Joe Hart has left Spurs for Celtic in a £1million deal.

The 34-year-old former England and Manchester City goalkeeper, played 10 times for Spurs last season but only in FA Cup and Europa League games.

On his move to Celtic, Hart said: “This is a great moment for me in my career and I am absolutely delighted to be joining a club of Celtic’s stature.

“I know just how big this club is and of the incredible support that it enjoys, and I can’t wait to play in front of the fans at Celtic Park.

“I’m looking forward to meeting up with my new team-mates now and getting to work with the squad and, in particular, the other goalkeepers here.”

Fabinho ‘delighted’ to sign new long-term Liverpool deal

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League club.

The Brazil international is the second key member of Jurgen Klopp’s team to commit their future to the Reds after Trent Alexander-Arnold penned a fresh deal last month.

“I’m delighted to have signed a new contract with the club,” Fabinho told, with the terms of the deal not disclosed.

“Since the beginning of the conversation, I was really positive about it because it’s what I wanted – staying in this club, keep playing for Liverpool. Now this is official and I’m really happy.

“These last three seasons I’ve been really happy here. I learned a lot with the manager, with all the staff, with the boys as well.

“We achieved things together and for me I think it’s the best place to be, the best place to keep growing, to keep learning from the staff, from the boys. Hopefully we will keep achieving good things.”

Fabinho’s previous terms were due to expire in the summer of 2023 and his renewal is part of Liverpool’s plan to tie down the futures of several experienced players during the coming months.

The PA news agency understands the club is eager to renew the contracts of Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Alisson Becker and Andy Robertson.

It comes after midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum left on a free this summer after he failed to agree new terms with Paris St Germain able to secure the services of the Holland international.

Since Fabinho moved to Anfield from Monaco in 2018, the midfielder has played an integral role in their Premier League and Champions League success, adeptly switching between his usual midfield role and a position in the heart of defence.

The 27-year-old has played 122 times for the Reds, scoring three goals – most notably against title rivals Manchester City during the 2019-20 campaign and is eager to add more trophies to his CV which includes Ligue 1 and the Super Cup from two years ago.

“The manager and the staff are pushing us for this because they know our capacity, they know our quality,” Fabinho added.

“Personally, as I say, I want to be the best for the team, I want to be an important piece in this team – not just as a player but as a leader as well. Keep learning from the boys and the staff and be the best I can.

“We know with these players we can go really far in all the competitions. In the last year we didn’t win any trophies, so I think everyone is hungry to win more trophies, win more things, to keep our fans happy. Hopefully we will do this this season.”
