Japan national team DF Takehiro Tomiyasu, who belongs to Bologna, has started to win this week with Tottenham Hotspur. However, it seems likely that Atalanta will be transferred in the near future. The Italian media “Football Italy” reports on the 29th.
The player has a contract with Bologna until June 2024. However, after last summer, when several clubs such as Milan and Bayer Leverkusen got interested, Atalanta started to win after the end of this season. In addition, the player side has already reached an agreement with Atalanta on a four-year contract with an annual salary of 1.3 million euros (about 170 million yen).
Among them, Tottenham started negotiations between clubs with Bologna to acquire Takehiro Tomiyasu. Bologna, on the other hand, is expected to demand at least 20 million euros (about 2.7 billion yen) as a transfer fee.
However, Italian media reported that Atalanta is still in talks with Bologna. No specific transfer amount has been reported, but it seems likely that an agreement between clubs could be reached as early as this week.
Takehiro Tomiyasu joined Bologna in the summer of 2019 after transferring from Avispa Fukuoka to Sint-Truiden VV of the Jupiler Pro League (Belgian First Division) in 2018. This season, coach Siniša Mihailovic was often left to the center back as well as the right side back, and he started in 31 games in Serie A.
