    Think he deserves his own thread now.

    A lot of journos reporting that he is the number one target for the leftsided centrehalf.

    Huge fee required it seems.

    Has anyone read anything about his weaknesses? Sounds like the perfect LCB from most posters. He must be rubbish at something!

    Heard they will take £51m. No idea if true or what significance £51m is. €55m?

    Edit - €60m.

    Would be a superb signing if we could pull it off. Excellent, excellent player!

    Better progressing with the ball and being creative than at out and out defending apparently.

    I haven't seen very much of him but that I have seen reminds me a little of Baresi. Is that an anyway accurate comparison?

    Stats say more of a ball playing defender than defensive. But being in a team at the top of the league probably means less defensive work needed compared to say a defender at burnley.

    Well Baresi was a baller from my fading recollection of him.

    You might be right. Always thought of him as more tenacious with maldini being more slick but it was a while back.

    So Bastoni is better than Baresi? That's the assertion?

    If that's the case we should sign him at any cost.

    I’m not sure about the Baresi comparison other than they’re both Italian defenders. Baresi was from another era, the “spare man” in a back four, hence a sweeper or libero. If Baresi played in the 2022 version of Spurs he’d replace Dier.
    I’d say the Maldini comparison might be more accurate. Having said that I’ve not seen enough of Bastoni to judge, I watched him v Liverpool in the champions league and Salah gave him a fairly torrid time but ultimately he prevailed.

    We have Romero as the more aggressive defender.

    Don't know anything about Bastoni but everyone talks highly about him, just hope we can get a few signings in earlier.

    The little I've watched him he's great on the ball and gets forward a lot and effectively. I was also hoping to see Romero type defending, but I don't think he's at that level defensively. Better than Davies? Probably yes and definitely better going forward.

    He seems amazing at pinging a ball. Switching defence to goalscoring opportunities. Think he's in the top 1% of creating chances among defenders in the top 5 leagues for that.
