Reports: Tottenham just £4.5m away from first January signing as release clause claim emerges

Tottenham Hotspur are thought to have agreed personal terms with Genoa defender Radu Dragusin as release clause claims emerge.

Even though 2024 is just getting started, Tottenham is working to make their first signing.

Mario van de Ven and Cristian Romero are both out with injuries, so finding a center defender is crucial.

Even though they will both return in the upcoming weeks, Tottenham’s defense is seriously lacking in depth, and at least one addition is required.

Radu Dragusin agrees personal terms with Tottenham Hotspur

Over the weekend, Fabrizio Romano asserted that Tottenham was gaining ground on Radu Dragusin, the defender for Genoa.

Romano said that negotiations were going well and that a £26 million transaction was headed in the right path.

Since then, Romano has claimed on social media that Dragusin has actually reached a personal agreement with Tottenham prior to moving to North London.

Additionally, it was reported that Tottenham is attempting to offer about €25 million (£21.5 million), while Genoa is reportedly seeking €30 million (£26 million) for Dragusin.

Spurs will undoubtedly make up the £4.5 million difference, as they are undoubtedly concerned about losing out on the Romanian center back.

According to some intriguing reports, Dragusin has informed Tottenham that he is prepared to sign a contract worth about €3 million year, according to Pro Sport in Romania.

That comes to about £50,000 a week, and the defender’s transfer to Tottenham might even include a release clause.

According to reports, a release clause worth between €70 million and €80 million, or between £61 million and £69 million, is being sought to enable a possible future transfer to a team like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, or Bayern Munich.

Daniel Levy would not agree with that notion, but Tottenham will have done fairly well if a £26 million signing turns out to be worth almost £70 million.

Release clauses are uncommon at Tottenham, at least not ones that are made public, so Spurs will now need to determine whether to agree to those demands.

Only hours after the January transfer market opened, Dragusin’s transfer is getting closer as Tottenham seems to have acceded to his wage demands.
