is about to join English side after just one season with Atalanta.

Spurs have hired former director as their managing director of football, he has been looking to Serie A clubs for players to lure to North London, and he is looking at the Argentine international to bolster the defence.

TyC Sports reports that will pay Atalanta €40 million, plus €10m in bonuses for Romero, and no players are expected to be offered in exchange.

The 23-year-old is expected to sign a contract lasting until June 2026 and earn €2.8m per season.

Romero will be leaving La Dea just a year after he arrived from on an initial loan deal and I Bergamaschi are expected to exercise their option to acquire him outright before selling to Spurs.

The Atalanta defender was voted the best defender of the 2020/21 Serie A season by the Lega Serie A, and he made the Team of the Tournament for the 2021 Copa America, which he won with his native Argentina.
