Tottenham: Lilywhites push for ‘genius’ signing after Conte call

Tottenham: Lilywhites push for ‘genius’ signing after Conte call -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur are pushing for a major summer signing with manager Antonio Conte making a call ‘in recent days’, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Spurs summit held…

As has been widely reported, Spurs transfer chief Fabio Paratici has recently held a summit with Conte in Italy as the pair sit down and discuss summer window plans.

The Premier League side, having recently secured a previously unthought of finish in the top four, could also be handed a £150 million transfer windfall after ENIC and chairman Daniel Levy announced a capital increase.

A real air of positivity has currently swept through the Lilywhites ahead of what will be an extremely interesting few months before Conte’s first full season in charge.

Of the big name targets linked with a move to north London, Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni is thought to be high on the agenda.

As Paratici and co also reportedly close in on the signing of Ivan Perisic from the San Siro side, journalist Pasquale Guarro has a promising update on Spurs’ pursuit of the centre-half.

The Latest: Lilywhites ‘push’ after Conte call ‘in recent days’…

According to the Calciomercato reporter, Bastoni has ‘received the call of Conte’ in ‘recent days’ as the club ‘push’ for his signing.

He explained (via Twitter):

There is not only Perisic in the aims of #Tottenham , the “Spurs” push for Bastoni and in recent days the defender has received the call of Conte .”

The Verdict: Good news…

The 23-year-old, lauded as a ‘world class‘ player by members of the press, has also been lavished as a ‘defensive genius’ by Italian football expert Conor Clancy (GiveMeSport).

While reports suggest he could cost a large £51m, Bastoni’s age and already glowing reputation indicate he could well be worth the investment – not least because he already has experience working under Conte.

Amid Tottenham’s search for an astute left-footed defender for the 52-year-old’s back three, we believe it is no surprise that the Inter ace is a prime target as the club make a real push.
