Tottenham planning surprise move for 25-year-old Serie A defender

Spurs were looking at then Atalanta right-back Andrea Conti as a replacement for Kyle Walker. But a move didn’t materialise and Italy international, instead, went on to join AC Milan in the summer of 2017.

Andrea has struggled to nail down his place at Rossoneri since recovering from his knee injury last year. He has been and out of the team this campaign as well, although Conti started in their matches with Juventus and Napoli.

Rossoneri have struggled throughout this campaign and are currently 12th in the table, 11 points behind fourth-placed Cagliari. The appointment of Stefano Pioli as Marco Giampaolo’s replacement hasn’t done any favours yet, with Milan winning only once under the new coach.

Given the turmoil Rossoneri are in, the London club should take advantage of their situation to sign the 25-year-old defender in winter. Spurs dominated the football headlines last week after long-serving boss Mauricio Pochettino was sacked and less than 12 hours later, Jose Mourinho was appointed as the club’s new coach.

So far, the Mourinho-era has started well with victories over West Ham United, Bournemouth and Olympiacos. Although the wins haven’t been straightforward, the Portuguese manager should be pleased with three victories on board.
