Tottenham are negotiating with Bologna on a deal with the Japan international Fuan Takehiro.
The 22-year-old player can play as a central defender or right back. These are two problematic positions for Tottenham in the past year and have become the focus of many Premier League clubs.
London rivals West Ham used to be interested in Fu’an Southampton and Aston Villa both made offers for the defender in January. Southampton returned to the game in February, hoping to make a deal before the summer, but people think there may be even bigger moves.
It is said that Tottenham have long been interested in the Bologna defender, who made 31 appearances in Serie A last season, even though the former head coach Mourinho is not a fan.
Tottenham Hotspur is also interested in Danish defender Joachim Anderson, who returned to Lyon after a season on loan with Fulham, even though they were relegated to the Championship last season.
