Spurs have a number of irons … The post Paratic’s ‘whirlwind of operations’ slowing down one Spurs deal appeared first on Football365.
Spurs managing director Fabio Paratici has so many deals on his plate that one transfer is currently on the back-burner, according to a report.
Tottenham are set to complete the signing of Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini on loan until the end of the season in the next few days.
He will join on a season-long loan with an option to buy for £13m which will become an obligation if he plays a certain amount of games, insists Sky in Italy.
Paratici, the club’s managing director of football, has been in discussions with Atalanta this week, also enquiring about defender Cristian Romero.
Romero has spent the last two campaigns on loan with Atalanta from Juventus. He is still on Juve’s books, although Atalanta are expected to trigger his €16m (£13.8m) buyout clause soon.
He could then join Spurs for a larger fee, handing Atalanta a decent profit if they decided to sell him to the north London club.
Not only does Paratici have those deals to sort out, he also has to try and convince Harry Kane – alongside Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and new boss Nuno Espirito Santo – that he should stay in north London.
There have been rumours that Manchester City were willing to pay £160m for Kane, although , for now.
describe Tottenham and Paratici as being in a ‘veritable whirlwind of operations in the transfer market’.
Negotiations over a swap deal involving Erik Lamela and Sevilla winger Bryan Gil ‘continues its course but not with the expected speed’ due to the sheer volume of deals the club are working on.
, Lamela will head to the LaLiga side with Gil arriving in England – but Spurs will also have to pay €25m plus add ons to secure the signing.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min has committed his future to Tottenham by signing a new four-year contract and earning a bumper pay rise in the process.
On signing the deal, Son said: “It was already a big honour to play here for six years, the club have showed me massive, massive respect and obviously I’m very happy to be here.
“It’s like home, especially with the fans, the players, the staff. There was no decision. It was easy. I’m so happy to be here and will be so glad to see the fans again soon.”
