TOTTENHAM could make a bid for Inter Milan star Alessandro Bastoni, reports suggest.
Bastoni, 23, rose to prominence with the Serie A giants while under current Spurs boss Conte.
According to Inter Live, the North Londoners could make a â¬50million (Â£43m) offer for the centre-back during the January transfer window.
Transfer insider Dean Jones, previously stated that the Italy international would be a âdream signingâ for Tottenham manager Conte and chief Fabio Paratici.
However, Spurs could face competition as the 23-year-old is also being monitored by both Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Italian could be keen on a reunion with Conte as he recently praised him for helping him take his game to the next level.
Bastoni said: “It is as if I have made a qualitative leap.
“He is a driving force, a real motivator who makes specific requests to his players, trying to transfer a winning mentality.
“Of course, bad moments also happen, but the important thing is to know how to get up. I owe him so much.â
Bastoni has also been linked with Chelsea and could thus be subject to quite a heated bidding war.

Premier League teams consider him an interesting prospect as he will have one year remaining on his deal in June.
The defender joined Inter from Atalanta in 2017 and was immediately shipped back to Bergamo on loan before joining Parma on a temporary basis a year later.
But he finally got his big break at the San Siro under Conte and currently counts a total of three goals and 10 assists in 130 appearances.
