Alessandro Bastoni breaks silence over failed Tottenham move

Alessandro Bastoni has been speaking about his failed move to Tottenham...


Tottenham were strongly linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni last summer.

The Italian was Antonio Conte’s number-one target as Spurs went after a new central defender.

However, the deal failed to materialise with the 23-year-old opting to stay at the San Siro.

Bastoni: “There was some contact”

Bastoni made it clear that his desire was to remain with his boyhood club Inter Milan.

Conte was desperate to sign a player who he had much success with in the past.

The Italian coach gave a young Bastoni his chance at Inter and the defender went on to become a key part of their title-winning team.

Spurs instead moved for Clement Lenglet on loan.

Now, Bastoni has confirmed the rumours of the north London club’s interest.

Bastoni told Calciomercato: “Conte did he want me at Tottenham? There was some contact, but I’m glad I stayed.”
