According to a report from le10sport, Tottenham are monitoring Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne alongside fellow interested parties Paris-Saint Germain and Leicester City – with the defender recently stating that he couldn’t possibly ‘say no‘ to a north London move.
Castagne, starting 12 Serie A games for his club over the 2019/2020 season, has arguably impressed when given the opportunity – so much so that Spurs are now viewing him as a potential alternative to Serge Aurier in the right-back position.
Who would you prefer at right-back?
The versatile defender, who can also be deployed as a winger, has been on chairman Daniel Levy’s radar for some time – especially given his €16 million (£14.6 million) Transfermarkt valuation which could be viewed as a real bargain coup amidst uncertain financial times.
As per the Athletic, Tottenham have had to borrow £175 million through an emergency grant supplied by the Bank of England – resulting in our club prioritising bargain deals, free agents and loan moves in the summer transfer window.
Castagne could be deemed a bargain deal, but now Spurs may have to act fast given the presence of another Premier League club in the race for his signature.
Compared to former Brazil star Maicon upon his arrival in Italy from Genk, Castagne has clearly impressed enough to warrant this significant interest – but only time will tell whether we manage to beat both PSG and the Foxes to his highly sought-after signature.
