Ivan Perišić left Inter Milan as a free agent and agreed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur.
After taking the Croatian, the north London club tried to raid the San Siro for Alessandro Bastoni, however, the defender is keen to stay at the Serie A side.
According to Alfredo Pedullà, Tottenham ‘want to shop’ again at Inter as their manager, Antonio Conte, ‘thinks’ of Lautaro Martínez.
It’s said the ex-Chelsea manager is looking at the Argentina international, irrespective of whether his star striker, Harry Kane, stays or leaves.
Conte has a great relationship with Kane and the latter is untouchable, at least on paper, for his club. The north London club have offered a new deal to the English striker, who it’s stated is on Bayern Munich’s agenda.
The Bundesliga winners are looking to sign Liverpool’s Sadio Mané, but they will need a new striker if Robert Lewandowski were to end up at Barcelona. Alfredo Pedullà claims this is where Kane fits in for Bayern.
Irrespective of the Tottenham star’s situation, Conte still thinks of the South American for the Premier League side. It won’t be easy for Spurs to sign him, as his agent Alejandro Camaño admitted Martínez is happy with his life, on and off the pitch, in Milan.
“Right now, we are enjoying a very good year for Lauti. From the football point of view, but also from that of personal life and stability,” Camaño told FcInterNews.
“We are feeling the affection of the people of Milan, also because he recently started a project with Agustina in the city [the Coraje restaurant]. Of course, his profession as a footballer predominates, but to date I have no reason to think there is even a chance that he will leave Inter.
“No one told us anything, the truth is that a player who scores so many goals in a complicated league one does not go unnoticed, but there is still a four-year contract.
“He is fine, he is happy, he enjoys the team, the club, his teammates. There are no reasons to leave. We know what professional football is like, today I am affirming this and tomorrow everything can change. But today the situation is the one I have just described.”
