Spurs considering a deal for Bastoni…
Since the summer transfer window, the Lilywhites have been connected with a move for the Italian sensation, with rumours stating that Fabio Paratici and co were ‘working’ to get him to the Premier League.
Antonio Conte’s interest in the 23-year-old has not waned, according to reports in Italy, and the Spurs manager is desperate to complete a deal for him.
The most difficult component of this agreement will be luring Bastoni away from the San Siro, especially considering his genuine affection for the Nerazzurri shirt, which he carries like a ‘mark on his flesh.’
The Latest: Jones provides an important update on Bastoni…
Dean Jones, a journalist, has provided an important update on Tottenham’s prospects of signing the Italy international in January. He adds that Inter has already ‘told’ Tottenham that Bastoni would not be ‘gettable’ in the winter.
Jones told GiveMeSport, “I’m not sure how practical he is.” I’ve been informed repeatedly in Italy that he won’t be available in January, and I believe Tottenham has been told the same.”
Conte Scores a Victory?
Spurs’ interest in Bastoni has been hailed, with the club’s former goalkeeper and former England international Paul Robinson describing him as a potential’statement signing.’
The centre-back, who has been dubbed a defensive ‘genius’ by Serie A experts, may have been ideal for helping to shore up Conte’s leaky backline in recent weeks.
According to Jones’ newest assertion, Lilywhites fans may have to wait a little longer for the signing of Bastoni.
