Takehiro Tomiyasu: personal terms agreed

Yes, it has been reported that the club have now agreed on personal terms with the defender, Takehiro Tomiyasu. It is just a matter of the club’s valuation and Bologna’s valuation meeting in the middle.

Fabio Paratici, our director of football, is ‘especially keen’ on bringing the defender to the Tottenham stadium.

According to Sky Sports, Fabio Paratici had a preliminary bid rejected by Bologna, worth around £12.9m plus £2.6m in add-ons. The Italian club are said to be looking for £17.2m in total. Fabio has no intention of giving up on this excellent acquisition.

As our supporters well know, Spurs have struggled at both centre-back and right-back last season, with Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, and Matt Doherty all suffering inconsistent campaigns.

My view

This would be a good procurement for us. Takehiro can play at right-back or centre-back, not only that but also on the right side of a back three. Which will give our new coach extra options.

A bit about the player

Takehiro Tomiyasu was born on the 5th November 1998 and is a Japanese professional footballer who plays as a centre-back or right-back for Serie A club Bologna and, of course, the Japan national team.

Years         Team         Apps          (Gls)

2018–2019         Sint-Truiden        27     (1)

2019–        Bologna    60     (3)

He could be our first signing, but he won’t be our last. Some players will leave us, some will also come from our Academy. If we can get the right mix, we could climb up the ladder to success and trophies, but that would be a big “if”. But if that does happen, then Nuno will be the first manager/ Coach in 13 years to bring us a trophy.

All the best, Glenn
