Tottenham: Antonio Conte ‘fixed’ on Alessandro Bastoni

Tottenham: Antonio Conte ‘fixed’ on Alessandro Bastoni -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is personally ‘fixed’ on signing Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni, according to reports from Italy.

The Lowdown: Spurs eyeing new defender?

The Lilywhites have had a real problem at the back recently, conceding 11 goals in their last five Premier League games and more than anyone else in the top eight throughout the season so far.

Conte will not be happy with that defensive record and it certainly is not a good portent if they wish to seal Champions League qualification for a second successive season. As such, reports have suggested that the north Londoners could look to solve this problem by bringing in a world-class central defensive option.

Villarreal star Pau Torres has been linked with a move to N17 recently, while it is well known that Tottenham’s sporting director Fabio Paratici targeted Bastoni in the summer.

The Latest: Conte ‘fixed’ on signing Bastoni…

A fresh report from Italy has provided the latest on Spurs and their chances of signing the latter.

The Italy centre-back, who is rumoured to likely cost around €55m (£48m), is a serious target for Conte, who apparently has Bastoni ‘fixed’ in his mind.

This information comes from Inter Live, who add that the 23-year-old is ‘more than an idea’ at Tottenham and that he is ‘urgently needed’ at the club.

The Verdict: Difficult…

Bastoni’s signing would perhaps be the most difficult to pull off mid-season, given that he apparently wants to remain at the San Siro.

However, if Spurs were to pull off this unlikely transfer coup, there is little dispute that he would strengthen their defensive options to no end.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Called a defensive ‘genius’ by Italian football expert Conor Clancy, the centre-back’s young age also indicates that he could improve even further, especially under a serial winner like Conte.
