Bayern Munich’s entry into the competition for Radu Dragusin has dealt a significant blow to Tottenham’s chances of signing the Genoa ace.
Tottenham has well-documented issues at center-back, as hamstring problems have currently sidelined Sergio Romero and Micky van de Ven.
To tackle Spurs’ injury issues, Bayern Munich had already prepared to acquire Eric Dier and had singled out Dragusin, aged 21.
Nevertheless, recent reports from Romania and Germany indicate that Bayern has redirected its focus towards Dragusin.
In light of the injury setbacks experienced by Matthijs de Ligt over the past 18 months, Thomas Tuchel aims to strengthen his defense.
Reportedly seeking a swift resolution, Bayern is prepared to meet Genoa’s £30 million demand, with the aim of facilitating Dragusin’s acquisition within the next week.
Furthermore, securing a centre-back early in the January window was a priority for Ange Postecoglou, making it a significant setback if Bayern’s move for Dragusin materializes.
Tottenham might consider reviving their interest in Jean-Clair Todibo from Nice, although the Ligue 1 club is adamant about retaining the defender for the remainder of the season.
