Antonio Sanabria: Linked with move to Tottenham.

Tottenham are said to have agreed a deal to sign Roma forward Antonio Sanabria with Christian Eriksen a part of the deal, according to reports.

There had been reports recently that Sanabria was set for a move back to his former club Barcelona but Spanish newspaper Sport claim that talks had broken down.

However, Tottenham are said to have entered the race to sign the 20-year-old and have now agreed terms. Gazzetta Dello Sport claims that personal terms have been agreed between Spurs and the player but a price is yet to be agreed.

There are also suggestions that Roma are wanting midfielder Eriksen as part of the ongoing negotiations and see him as a replacement for the recently departed Miralem Pjanic. Italian website, CalcioMercato say that Roma boss, Luciano Spalletti has been keeping an eye on the Denmark international and is keen to have him at the club.

The reports also claim that Roma’s director of football, Walter Sabatini will broker the deal in the clubs’ discussions over Sanabria.

Sanabria was on the books at Barcelona between 2009 and 2013 but never featured in the Catalan club’s first team.

The Paraguay international eventually signed for Roma in 2014 but once again struggled for game time and has only made one appearance for the Giallorossi.

The young South American seems to have found his footing now while on loan at La Liga outfit Sporting Gijon, where he has scored 11 goals in 30 appearances.
