What Italian football experts are now saying about Radu Dragusin’s pace

Radu Dragusin is set to join Tottenham from Genoa.

The Romanian defender has reportedly been at Spurs’ training ground over the past 24 hours finalising a deal to sign for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

The defender may be thrown straight in at the deep end against Manchester United next week as Spurs continue to deal with an injury crisis at centre-back.

Of course, Dragusin will have to adapt to Ange Postecoglou’s high line once he starts playing in this Tottenham team, and his pace will be tested.

So, does Dragusin have the necessary speed to play in this system? Well, according to Alasdair Gold, speaking on his YouTube channel, Italian football experts all seem to believe that he’s fast enough to play in this way.

Dragusin is fast enough

Gold shared what he’s heard about the defender.

“It was more of a deeper lying defence at Genoa rather than this higher line, but everyone who knows anything about Italian football is saying that he has the pace to deal with the high line, he will be able to deal with that,” Gold said.

Promising

This is exactly what you want to hear about a new defensive signing at Tottenham.

As we’ve seen in recent weeks pace is paramount for any centre-back trying to play in Posteocglou’s team due to that incredibly high line, and luckily, it doesn’t sound as though Dragusin is a slouch.

Of course, if Dragusin is partnered with Micky van de Ven, his pace won’t be much of an issue anyway just because of how quick the Dutchman is.

Luckily though, it sounds as though Dragusin is more than fast enough to cope in this side, and we’re excited to see how he’s going to get on after signing for Tottenham.

By the sounds of it, Dragusin could be just what the doctor ordered in terms of defensive additions at Spurs.
