Ruslan Malinovskyi “dreams of Tottenham” and “would love” to sign with Spurs, according to Fabrizio Romano.
On the most recent Here We Go podcast, the transfer insider discussed the rumoured Tottenham target.
Over the past week or two, Malinovskyi has received a lot of attention from Spurs.
Last week, TuttoAtalanta revealed that Tottenham wanted to bring the Ukrainian international to N17.
Additionally, according to Tuttomercatoweb, Spurs would accept Sergio Reguilon in exchange for the 29-year-old.
A few days later, Calciomercato.com reported that Tottenham was in fact in the lead in the competition to sign Malinovskyi.

Malinovskyi wants to sign with Tottenham, but the club hasn’t yet expressed a solid interest, according to Romano.
He admitted, “It’s true that Ruslan Malinovskyi fantasises about Tottenham.
The message is quite clear from a player perspective because he would want to join Tottenham.
“But Marseille is the only team that has formally proposed to Atalanta.
A trade agreement with Cengiz Under. However, Atlanta’s position is against the status quo.
So, as of right now, there has been no deal with Marseille. Let’s see whether Tottenham decides to become involved.
