Battle between Bayern and Tottenham
With his meteoric rise at the backyards of Italy, Dragusin has been on the radar for several top clubs. Ahead of his move to Spurs, he was linked to German champions Bayern Munich, who had attempted to hijack his deal from the Premier League side. As a result, Spurs have reached an agreement with the Romanian for a reported fee of 30 million euros, with Bayern setting an advanced target fee of 31 million euros, leaving Radu on the splits to think about his future destination. Thankfully, for Ange Postecoglou, Radu has chosen Spurs, thus strengthening his defense.
Dragusin has racked up some exceptional numbers for his side this season, as he ranks first in the number of games played, and has exceptional record in the air, ranking third in aerial duels. He possess exuberant ability to go for the kill with his headed shots using his tall stature, ranking on ninth spot.
Although employed at back three by Genoa boss, he has showcased exceptional ability to play across the line, and Ange would be more than happy to get him with his side, ahead of Premier League action in the upcoming days.
