Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Takehiro Tomiyasu from Bologna in the summer transfer window, according to The Sun.
What’s the story?
Premier League club Tottenham are keen on securing the services of Tomiyasu.
Spurs are reportedly planning to make a bid of £15 million for 22-year-old, who can play as a central defender or as a right-back.
The Premier League club are confident of securing the services of the Japan international, who himself is ‘desperate’ to come to the Premier League.
Tottenham think that Tomiyasu ‘would be a top player for them’.
Who is Takehiro Tomiyasu?
Tomiyasu is a very talented and promising young defender who has played 23 times for Japan already.
The 22-year-old started his professional club football career at Avispa Fukuoka in Japan before making the move to Sint-Truidense in Belgium in 2018.
The youngster was snapped up by Bologna in the summer of 2019.
Tomiyasu has been a regular for Bologna over the past two seasons.
The defender scored one goal and gave three assists in 29 Serie A games in 2019-20.
The 22-year-old scored two goals in 31 Serie A appearances last season.
The Bologna no.14 played as a centre-back, right-back and left-back in the league last season, thereby showing his versatility.
