Spurs sign defender Dragusin from Genoa in £26.7m deal

Tottenham have signed defender Radu Dragusin in a £26.7m (€31m) deal from Genoa after the Romania international chose to join Spurs over Bayern Munich.

Tottenham saw off late competition from the German champions to conclude a deal that will see them pay an initial £21.5m (€25m) plus £5.2m (€6m) in add-ons to Genoa.

Napoli had also registered an interest in Dragusin, who has signed a contract with Tottenham which will run until 2030.

"I just feel excited. I feel very, very happy [to be here]. It's a big step for me, but I feel it's the right step." he told Spurs official after joining the club.

"I can say the decision was inside my heart. I had a couple of talks with the coach and I felt a really good connection with him.

"He told me that he really wanted me to join, he likes the way I play and he thinks that I am a good fit for the team. I like this kind of football with a high line aggressive with a lot of pace at the back to defend.

"It's a dream to come and play football for this kind of team."
