Fans fuming over Cristian Romero decision after Barcelona want a swap deal with Tottenham

According to a Spanish report, Tottenham Hotspur could offer Barcelona the chance to sign Cristian Romero in a swap deal for winger Raphinha
Ange Postecoglou is said to be considering strengthening his attack in the January transfer window, with Raphinha in his sights for a potential return to the Premier League
Tottenham have made an impressive start to the Australian manager’s era, winning eight of their first 10 Premier League games to set the tone in the title race
But successive defeats – 4-1 to Chelsea in north London and 2-1 to Wolves – have given Postecoglou a harsh reality check about the ruthless nature of England’s top flight
Spurs’ impressive start to the season has been fueled by early signs of promise among Postecoglou’s summer signings
James Maddison appears to be an inspired signing and Micky van de Ven has the makings of a top-class defender in the Premier League
According to Sport, Tottenham will push to sign Raphinha in January to renew their attacking firepower
Barcelona spent £55 million to sign Raphinha from Leeds United in the summer of 2022
He has 12 goals and 15 assists in 61 appearances for the Blaugrana
However, Tottenham would not be willing to meet that asking price, but Raphinha is a long-term target and he has only appeared three times in La Liga this season
Romero took out a season-long loan from Atalanta in a £47m deal that same summer
Raphinha changed Elland road to Camp Nou
But Tottenham would offer a significant sum of money in addition to one player to entice Barcelona to get rid of Raphinha
It remains to be seen whether the Catalan giants are interested in signing Romero
However, they suffered consecutive defeats to Chelsea and Wolves in their most recent outings, which showed their squad lacks depth
Postecoglou helps solve the problem in the January transfer window and keeps an eye on Raphinha for a potential arrival
And he is ready to offer key star Cristian Romero as part of a deal to sign the Brazilian, according to Spanish media outlet Sport
They still demand a high fee for Raphinha, who joined Leeds last year
The Blaugrana bid £61m for the winger, a year after he left Elland Road for £50m
This is an amount Tottenham are not willing to pay but are willing to offer a player as compensation
The arrival of Lamine Yamal also makes Barcelona consider getting rid of Raphinha, who is in poor form
At just 16 years old, the Spaniard has been phenomenal for club and country this season
Meanwhile, Raphinha has only scored 2 goals this season in all competitions
