Tottenham have reportedly prioritised the signing of an attacking midfielder after agreeing a deal to sign centre-back Cristian Romero from Atalanta. Mikkel Damsgaard and Noni Madueke are the duo in transfer chief Fabio Paratici’s crosshairs, two youngsters who appear to have promising futures. 

Spurs have finally made what looks like good progress in their pursuit of Cristian Romero, after it emerged that their £43million bid was accepted by Atalanta. 

Bryan Gil and Pierluigi Gollini have already been recruited from Sevilla and Atalanta respectively, as Nuno and Paratici seek to continue his momentum in the summer transfer market. 

According to the Evening Standard, the duo now have their eye on a new attacking midfielder. 

Mikkel Damsgaard was chosen by many as their breakout star of Euro 2020, dazzling on the way to the semi-finals with Denmark.

As a result, the 21-year-old’s club, Sampdoria, have slapped a £45m price-tag on his head which would be a big ask after the signing of Romero. 

A cheaper alternative has been earmarked as teenager Noni Madueke. 

The PSV youngster had a spell at Spurs’ youth academy, but his scintillating performances in the Eredivisie have reportedly alerted the club to their mistake of letting him go. 

Nuno and Paratici would have to fend off rival interest for his signature, but he would presumably be a much cheaper option than Damsgaard, who has recently become a household name.
