TOTTENHAM’S deal for Genoa centre-back Radu Dragusin has been HIJACKED by Bayern Munich, according to reports.
Spurs had reached an agreement with the Serie A side which consisted of £25.7m plus Djed Spence on loan.
According to Sky Sports, it is now up to Dragusin to decide which club he wants to join.
Spurs are hoping to fly Dragusin to London to complete the transfer, with critical hours ahead for all parties.
Postecoglou is in desperate need of a centre-back to bolster his depleted squad.
Cristian Romero and Ben Davies are both sidelined with injuries, while Micky van de Ven is only just returning from a lengthy spell out.
And Eric Dier is set to join Bayern Munich after a decade in North London.
Dragusin made his professional debut for Juventus in 2020 but struggled to establish himself as a regular first team player.
He was subsequently loaned out three times to Sampdoria, Salernitana and Genoa.
The defender completed a permanent move to Genoa last January and has since made 62 appearances.
Dragusin would be Tottenham’s second signing of the January window after they brought Timo Werner in on loan from RB Leipzig.
