Roberto De Fanti, a renowned football super agent, has now made a promising Tottenham Hotspur transfer claim involving target Alessandro Bastoni.
The Lowdown: Spurs enter talks…
The Lilywhites have allegedly entered discussions over signing Inter Milan’s star defender this summer, coming after they confirmed the signings of Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on Bosman deals.
Bastoni is believed to a be serious target for manager Antonio Conte and transfer chief Fabio Paratici with both of them ‘keen’ to get a deal done early before Premier League pre-season (Dharmesh Sheth).
The Italy international will apparently be allowed to leave for around €70 million (£60m), and according to De Fanti, the transfer is very possible.
The Latest: De Fanti makes Bastoni claim…
The football agent believes this is a deal that could certainly happen and ‘materialise’, even if Spurs may have to significantly invest to get it over the line.
He explained to CaughtOffside:
“This deal might happen. I wouldn’t be surprised, at all, if it did.
“He wouldn’t come cheap, we’re talking the same kind of sums that Manchester United paid Leicester City for Harry Maguire, but it is definitely a transfer that could materialise.
“When it comes to signing Bastoni, clubs, especially Tottenham Hotspur, know that although he is only 23-years-old, they would be signing a guaranteed superstar – he really is that good.”
The Verdict: Get it done…
Earning rave reviews from De Fanti, as well as being a ‘guaranteed superstar’, Bastoni has also been called a ‘defensive genius’ by Italian football expert Conor Clancy.
The £122,000-per-week centre-half comes with a glowing reputation, real sell-on value and bags of potential – surely making this an absolute priority deal for Tottenham.
