Cristian Romero en route to London to complete his Tottenham medical

Don’t move! But only if you want to, some movement is probably fine.

The official transfer of Cristian Romero between Atalanta and Tottenham Hotspur is imminent. Fabrizio Romano tweeted yesterday that the Argentine defender completed part of his required medical in Italy on Wednesday and is planning to fly to London today to finish up and sign the paperwork.

That means, apart from Romero falling into a hole immediately after stepping off of the plane, that we could get an official announcement possibly as early as today.

You know what else that means? TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR PLANE TRACKER TWITTER COYS COYS COYS LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOO

OK, this tweet was from last night so the plane has probably already landed. That makes things significantly less exciting as I drink my coffee this morning — these chartered flight planners need to think about the American bloggers — but does mean that we are just inches away from seeing Romero holding up a Tottenham shirt on social media.

Romero has the potential to be a hugely influential defender for Spurs for Nuno Espirito Santo this season. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of time to get settled and up to speed before Spurs kick off their Premier League campaign against Manchester City on Aug. 15. Hope you like a challenge, Cuti!
