As reported earlier on The Top Flight, Tottenham are closing in on a deal to sign Radu Dragusin from Genoa. Also, Genoa wants to have Djed Spence as part of that deal as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano. However, German giants Bayern Munich might be entering this race according to The Standard which will cause a serious blow to the chances of Spurs signing the Romanian international. Bayern have been looking for a center-back for a long time and there were reports that the Bavarians might look to sign Eric Dier from Spurs. However, if they end up signing Dragusin, then that would be a blow for Dier as well who might be dreaming of playing alongside Harry Kane again in a Bayern shirt. So, this Tottenham transfer news about Bayern trying to hijack Radu Dragusin deal is very important as Spurs need a center-back as soon as possible.

So, even if Spurs are in direct talks with Genoa, Bayern is there right in the mix;

"Bayern have now also opened negotiations with Genoa over a deal for Dragusin, although the Bavarian club have not agreed a fee either."

Also, Dragusin wants to leave Serie A to play in the Premier League. However, as the report says, Bundesliga could be tempting for the Romanian;

"Dragusin favours a move to the Premier League over Genoa's Serie A rivals Napoli, who made a player-plus-cash offer at the end of last week, but is thought to be open to joining either Bayern or Spurs this month, with the player expecting clarity on his future this week."
