Tottenham ‘find transfer alternative to Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni and get ready to invest £43m in Torino’s Gleison Bremer’… who has just won Serie A Defender of the Year
- Spurs are keen to sign Inter Milan defender Alessandro Bastoni this summer
- Antonio Conte’s side have reportedly identified Gleison Bremer as an alternative
- Tottenham hope to sign the Torino defender as well according to reports
- The 25-year-old won the Serie A Defender of the Year last campaign
- Bastoni is still the number one transfer target for Spurs despite the Gleison links
Tottenham have reportedly found a contingency plan should they miss out on number one target Alessandro Bastoni and are eyeing a swoop for Torino defender Gleison Bremer.
The 25-year-old was crowned Serie A Defender of the Year after an outstanding season in Turin and has since raised the eyebrows of Antonio Conte, according to reports.
Spurs have already signed Ivan Perisic on a free transfer this summer and have since been tipped to sign Bastoni and raid the Inter Milan squad once again.

However, although a deal for the defender is not completely off the table, talk of a move has swelled over the last fortnight and has looked increasingly unlikely.
According to Calciomercato, Inter have identified Bremer as a high-priority transfer target and are close to signing an agreement with the defender, reportedly for a fee in the region of £21 million.
The Italian outlet also claims that Spurs are ‘ready to bid up to £43 million’ for the Torino centre half, keen to scupper the Italian giant’s efforts to sign him.

Whilst the left-footed Bastoni would be preferred by Conte, as he is comfortable operating to the left of a back three, Bremer has shown exceptional quality at Torino and would be welcomed in North London.
Still yet to win an international cap, the Brazilian is likely to favour a move to a big club this summer as he hunts down a place at the World Cup.
Inter reportedly have no intention of signing Bremer purely as a replacement for Bastoni, viewing him as a shrewd addition to the squad in his own right.
