Tottenham Hotspur have been active in the summer transfer window as they have already signed six new players so far.

Among them was Clément Lenglet and the centre-back joined the north London club on a loan deal from Barcelona.

Prior to the Frenchman’s arrival, Tottenham looked at Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni to bolster their defence. There were reports of Spurs willing to invest a fee of around €60m to secure the Italy international’s services.

Antonio Conte knows the 23-year-old well from his time at the San Siro and the coach wanted to reunite with his former player at the English capital.

This possibility was ruled out by Bastoni, according to former defender Massimo Brambati, who now works as an agent.

Brambati appeared as a guest TMW Radio’s program, Maracanà, and mentioned Tottenham’s attempts when discussing Inter and Juventus’ chances of signing Torino’s Gleison Bremer this summer.

“We need to understand if the possible sale of Skriniar is due or is it a sale for an amount that is better to accept. Do you need to sell Skriniar or not? I still don’t understand this,” Brambati said.

“Someone asked about Bastoni and Inter sat down, to evaluate. It was Tottenham who tested the ground. The player, however, put his foot down because he didn’t want to leave.”

It’s to be noted Bastoni is not managed by Brambati.
