Spurs: Dharmesh Sheth drops Alessandro Bastoni update

Dharmesh Sheth has dropped an update on the future of reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Alessandro Bastoni.

What’s the talk?

Transfer Focus

In a recent interview with GIVEMESPORT, the Sky Sports reporter revealed that, despite Fabio Paratici sealing the signing of Barcelona centre-back Clement Lenglet on a season-long loan this summer, Spurs sporting director will also be keeping a very close eye on the situation of the Inter Milan defender over the course of 2022/23.

Sheth goes on to state that, with Tottenham being linked with a €60m (£51m) move for the 23-year-old earlier this summer, Paratici and his team will continue to monitor the Italy international’s contract situation at the San Siro ahead of potentially launching another move for the centre-back in the summer of 2023.

Regarding Tottenham’s interest in Bastoni, the Sky Sports reporter said: “Because Lenglet is a loan signing, maybe Tottenham have got a longer-term target in mind to go for next summer.

“Earlier on in the window, they were very, very interested in the Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni, but Inter simply would not sell him. They consider him as one of their crown jewels, I think.

“But he’s only got two years left on his contract, so I think Tottenham will be keeping an eye on that next summer and, if he doesn’t sign a new deal, they will see if there’s a potential deal to be done.”

Supporters will be buzzing

Considering just how talented a centre-back Bastoni undoubtedly is, Sheth’s claim that Tottenham could reignite their interest in the 23-year-old next summer is sure to have left Spurs supporters buzzing.

Indeed, over his 31 Serie A appearances last season, the £59m-rated defender was in imperious form for Simone Inzaghi’s side, helping Inter keep eight clean sheets, as well as making an average of making 1.1 interceptions, 1.4 tackles, 1.8 clearances and winning 4.1 duels – at a success rate of 60% – per game.

The £122k-per-week talent also impressed in an attacking capacity, scoring one goal, registering three assists and creating four big chances for his teammates, in addition to completing an average of 50.5 passes, 4.0 long balls, 0.4 dribbles and 0.5 key passes per fixture.

These returns saw the 15-cap international who Statman Dave dubbed a “special CB talent” average a simply sensational SofaScore match rating of 7.10, ranking him as the Nerazzurri’s second-best defender and their eighth-best player overall in the league last time out.

As such, it is clear to see just how exciting an addition Bastoni would make to Antonio Conte’s options in his three-man backline, leading us to believe that Sheth’s update regarding Paratici’s long-term interest in the Italian will delight everyone involved with the north London side – not least the Tottenham manager.
