Inter Milan have put a £50m price tag on Alessandro Bastoni amid interest Manchester United and Tottenham.

The defender, who had 14 caps for Italy by the age of 23, is a target for both Erik ten Hag and Antonio Conte.

Conte worked with Bastoni during his time at Inter and made the defender an integral part of his starting XI in 2019/20 as he led the Italians to the Scudetto.

Bastoni was again an influential force for Inter last season, making 44 appearances for the club as they finished second against rivals AC Milan.

Although Inter would rather keep Bastoni, the Italians are considering cashing in one of their most prized assets to fund a move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Blues are seeking nearly £90million for the Belgian, who left the San Siro for Stamford Bridge less than 12 months ago.

That Inter will therefore accept bids in the region of £50m for Bastoni to top up their transfer budget, according to the Daily Mail.

Spurs seems like the more realistic target for Bastoni given his pre-existing relationship with Conte and the fact that Spurs can offer him Champions League football.

Tottenham have already signed Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster this summer and Conte would like up to six new signings to bolster his squad.
