Journalist Pasquale Guarro has made an interesting Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving Inter Milan star and defensive target Alessandro Bastoni.
The Lowdown: Bastoni top of Tottenham’s list…
A left-sided central defender is thought to be of serious interest to Conte, with the Nerazzurri ace said to be valued at around £50m.
The Latest: Conte making ‘personal commitment’ to sign Bastoni…
According to Guarro, reiterating the club’s interest in Bastoni ‘firmly’, Conte is apparently making a ‘personal commitment’ to seal the 23-year-old’s signing this summer.
The reporter explained (via Twitter): “I can reiterate this firmly: the #Tottenham is working on the hips for #Bastoni , Conte wants to transfer the left chain of the #Inter to London and is making a personal commitment.”
The Verdict: Promising claim…
There is little denying that Bastoni would seriously upgrade Tottenham’s back-three options and provide Conte with an injection of real class.
Widely tipped as Italy’s next generation defensive answer to legendary Azzurri figurehead Giorgio Chiellini, the 6 foot 2 star has also been called a ‘defensive genius‘ by Italian football expert Conor Clancy.
Already possessing a glowing reputation, chief Squawka writer Muhammad Butt has called Bastoni a ‘special‘ player, which shows why Conte is very eager to bring the Italy international to north London.
If the Lilywhites can back the manager with the 23-year-old’s addition, it could certainly signal the start of a very promising summer.
