His performances helped Atalanta to a third-successive third place league finish.
Romero, a versatile defender capable to play as a centre-back or right-back, played 42 games across all competitions last season, recording three goals and five assists,
The Italian director, Paratici previously signed the Argentinian during his tenure at Juventus, that's why Romero was pushing for this deal to be completed.
Spurs really struggled last season in defense, therefore the energy from 'Cuti' should transform the 'Lilywhites' back-line into one of the strongest of the Premier League.
''I'm very happy to be part of this Club,'' Romero told Spurs TV when the signing was made official. ''I want to thank all the fans as well. You wanted me here and here I am!
Now I'll try and respond and repay all the faith that the Club is showing in me. I'm ready to start and give my everything to defend this shirt. Come on you Spurs!''
