“Agent Confirms Newcastle’s Discussions About Defender Linked to Spurs”

Joe Lee

Genoa defender Radu Dragusin’s agent has disclosed that numerous teams have approached him about a possible move for his client ahead of the January transfer window.

move will depend on the price PSG might demand, with Spurs unlikely to pay over the odds for the experienced star.

Dragusin has been highly rated since he was a child, which is why Juventus signed him in 2018 when he was just 16 years old.

The Romanian only made four professional games for the Old Lady, but he demonstrated his promise during a loan spell at Genoa last season, and the Serie A club, predictably, exercised their option to acquire him permanently this summer.

The 21-year-old had previously been linked with a move to Tottenham, with Serie B News reporting earlier this year that the North London club was keeping a close eye on his progress.

The youngster has had a solid start to the season, having started every single one of Genoa’s nine Serie A matches this season, and according to his agent, the player is attracting quite a bit of interest.

Newcastle are interested in Radu Dragusin

Dragusin’s representative, Florin Manea, confirmed Newcastle’s interest in his client and explained that Genoa value the centre-back at €30m (£26m).

When asked about speculation suggesting that the Magpies have made an offer for the player, Manea told Calciomercato: “It is not an offer from Newcastle (although) I have had meetings with Newcastle and other teams. Genoa would only sell him for an offer exceeding 30 million euros. Genoa will certainly ask a lot of money for him.

“(Dragusin’s) dream is to reach the highest level. Personally, I have never had any doubts about Radu, given that I know all the sacrifices he makes every day to improve himself. He pays attention to every little detail, especially his diet.

Tottenham were seemingly keeping an eye on Dragusin during the Fabio Paratici era, with the Italian being the man who brought the defender to Juventus. However, there is nothing concrete to suggest that the 21-year-old still remains on Spurs’ radar.
