Newcastle Utd Drag Juventus Defender Signature With Tottenham

Tottenham and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in Juventus’ under-23s defender Radu Dragusin.

The highly-rated centre-back joined Juventus’ youth academy in 2018 after making the switch from Regal Bukarest’s under-19s.

Dragusin, who can play on either side of a defensive pairing, is emerging as one of Europe’s most talented prospects.

After making his senior competitive debut at the end of last year during a Champions League group game against Dynamo Kiev, there are expectations that the 18-year-old can grow to become a real talent.

Having already gone on to make three senior appearances, including in the Serie A, there are reports that Juventus are desperate to tie the Romanian defender down on a new deal.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, there are growing concerns the youngster could be set for a move elsewhere.

Italian reporter Gianluigi Longari claims three clubs have already expressed an interest in the highly-rated defender: Spurs, Newcastle United and Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

Longari goes on to claim that despite the growing interest in the teenager, Juventus remain hopeful they will see Dragusin pen a new deal.
