Tottenham may have just been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Alessandro Bastoni.
The defender’s agent has been speaking to Sportitalia about the player’s future.
Tullio Tinti claims his client is happy at Inter Milan, but he may have to “adapt” if a potential transfer arises.
Bastoni’s agent: “We must also adapt…”

The 23-year-old has reportedly been against leaving Inter Milan, but owing to the club’s financial situation, he may be sold.
Inter need to raise money to fund their own transfer window and to do so, they need to sacrifice a big name.
The Italian defender and Laurto Martinez are the two players whose names have been mentioned.
But given Antonio Conte’s strong desire to bring Bastoni to Spurs, an offer for Bastoni is most likely to arrive.
Speaking about Bastoni’s future, his agent said:
“He is a huge fan of the team he plays for, he likes to be at Inter.
“But he is also a professional, football is this and we must also adapt.
“He is very happy to play for Inter, he has the shirt on his skin.”
Tottenham reject Dybala signing
Tottenham have rejected the chance to sign Paulo Dybala, according to the Daily Mail.
The Argentine was asking for £280,000-per-week, which Spurs deemed to be too expensive.
Inter Milan have offered him just less than that amount but he is still holding out for his demands.
