Paratici, who joined Tottenham in July, has already been able to sign three important players ahead of the coming Premier League season, and it seems like he's not done just yet.
Looking for a striker
Spurs have now been linked with Inter Milan's striker Lautaro Martínez, and according to Football London's Alasdair Gold, both teams have agreed a fee.
In case the deal goes through, Martínez has been signed initially to play alongside Harry Kane, and the hope is that the pair will complement each other pretty well.
Lautaro Martinez’s agent Alejandro Camano spoke with Football Insider Fabrizio Romano, and revealed there is a Tottenham offer on the table, but both Martínez and Inter are not interested.
“Lautaro is happy at Inter and in Italy,” Camano said. “His decision is to stay. He’s never gonna have a fight with Inter to leave the club. Never. Lautaro’s an Inter player and he’s happy in Italy.”

Is it realistic?
Inter is battling some big financial difficulties this summer, therefore a Martínez transfer shouldn't be completely ruled out.
As Inter cruised to a Serie A title last season, Martínez scored 19 goals in 38 league games.
He also played a huge role in Argentina's Copa America title run this summer.
Tottenham opened talks days ago for Lautaro Martinez offering €70m, also Atletico asked for Lautaro. He’s a real target for Spurs - Inter now say they’ve no intention to sell him this summer. 🚨🇦🇷 #THFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 8, 2021
After selling Lukaku to Chelsea, Inter plan is to keep Lautaro Martinez.
