Spurs target Alessandro Bastoni to improve their backline and are willing to offer Emerson Royal along with cash. Antonio Conte is a big admirer of the Italian defender but has been struggling to convince him to move to the North London side. Bastoni is a Nerazzurri fan all his life and is not looking for a change in the foreseeable future. But Tottenham Hotspur are willing to make a tempting offer to Inter, which can drive the negotiations forward.
The Nerazzurri consider Bastoni a key part of their defense and has developed him to be one of the best in Italy. Conte knows his qualities and wants to fit him in his system at Spurs. Currently, Tottenham Hotspur have limited quality options in defense. Bastoni will give him the luxury to move the ball forward from the back. Spurs have been reliant on their direct and pragmatic style of play, as they do not have defenders that can build up from the back.
Spurs target Alessandro Bastoni and are ready to offer Emerson Royal
Cristian Romero and Eric Dier are the only two defenders that Conte trusts. Davies has not been bad, but the Spurs want to upgrade him, to get up the table. Their neighbors, Arsenal have been in terrific form this season, which makes them more desperate to improve their squad. Moreover, Conte could leave them if they fail to acquire the players he wants. Patrici has strong Italian connections, but it will be tough to convince Bastoni.
The Nerazzurri could listen to the offer as they are in search of a backup wing-back in case Dumfries leaves. However, they will still demand a huge fee for Bastoni, as many clubs will be willing to sign him if he becomes available. But currently, Inter Milan are planning to extend his contract.
