Lots of Tottenham fans have been reacting to the latest transfer reports, as one Italian outlet claimed Roma could sell one time Tottenham target Diego Perotti.
Italian outlet SportMediaSet claim Roma are ready to sell Perotti, who has previously been linked with a move to North London.
The Argentinian playmaker has five international caps, and his versatility could still appeal to Mauricio Pochettino, able to play on either wing or as a second striker or number ten.
The 29-year-old is excellent with both feet, loves attacking defenders, and can whip in an excellent cross. One area he needs to improve is his end product, racking up just 16 Serie A goals in two and a half seasons with Roma, but his work rate is fantastic. Basically, he’s a two-footed Erik Lamela.
Spurs fans are of course growing impatient with the lack of transfer activity this summer, as the swoop for Jack Grealish seems to be taking forever.
Perotti is 29 and entering the last few years of his contract, but one thing that could halt the deal is Malcom’s move to Barcelona, as the Brazilian winger was expected to replace Perotti in Rome.

We missing out on exciting players left right and centre then end up with ..??? Aarrrgg!
Linked with Malcom – Gone
Linked with Kluveit – Gone
Linked with Pulisic – Not Happening
Linked with Martial – Not Happening
And all those players will be costing a fortune when we need them
