Barcelona move to trump Tottenham for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero

Barcelona are threatening Tottenham's plans for Atalanta defender Cristian Romero.

Sportitalia says Tottenham's new technical director Fabio Paratici is looking to reshape the squad, with talks continuing over a potential £42m deal for Atalanta's 23-year-old - which they now hope to get over the line following the departure of Toby Alderweireld.

However, this figure is still far off Atalanta's £51m asking price for Romero, whose stock is high following his Copa America triumph with Argentina.

Barcelona are preparing to make a move for Romero and out-bid Tottenham for his signature.

It has been reported that Barcelona have been watching Romero's situation closely for some time, but the Spanish giants are now expected to make a formal bid over the coming days.
