Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been handed a significant update on their club’s chances of signing Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni in January.
The Lowdown: Spurs eye Bastoni move…
That interest has not gone away from Antonio Conte’s perspective, as claims from Italy suggest that the Spurs head coach is determined to get a deal done for the 23-year-old.
The hardest aspect of this deal by far will be tempting Bastoni away from the San Siro, especially given his real love for the Nerazzurri jersey that he wears like a ‘tattoo on his skin’.
The Latest: Jones shares significant Bastoni update…
Journalist Dean Jones has shared a significant update on Spurs’ chances of signing the Italy international in January. He claims that Tottenham have already been ‘told’ by Inter that Bastoni will not be ‘gettable’ in the winter.
Speaking to GiveMeSport, Jones said: “I’m not sure how realistic he is. I’ve been told by people regularly in Italy that they don’t think he’ll be gettable in January, and I think Tottenham have been told that, too.”
The Verdict: Blow for Conte?
Spurs have been lauded for their interest in Bastoni, with the club’s former goalkeeper and previous England international Paul Robinson calling him a potential ‘statement signing‘.
Alas, it appears that Lilywhites supporters may have to wait longer for the signing of Bastoni, going by this latest claim from Jones.
