Tottenham will pay Bologna €20 million in transfer fee (£17.07m) excluding bonuses for the 22-year-old, who can play as a centre-back or as a right-back.

However, the two clubs have yet to reach an agreement on payment terms.

Tottenham need to bring in a central defender, especially as Toby Alderweireld has left.

Tomiyasu is a very versatile defender who can play as a right-back, centre-back or even left-back.

In Serie A last season, the 22-year-old played 16 times as a centre-back, 13 times as a right-back, and twice as a left-back.

Moreover, Tomiyasu is only 22, which means that he is only going to get better in the coming years.
