Report: Club are not willing to accept less than £35m for Tottenham target

According to Calciomercato, the race for Tottenham target Alessandro Buongiorno is now heating up, with Torino determined to get a big fee for the centre-back.

A couple of days ago, Corriere dello Sport reported that Napoli are set to become the first to make an offer for Buongiorno, with the Serie A side allegedly plotting an offer of €35m (£30m) plus €5m (£4.2m) in add-ons.

Now, CalcioMercato have reported something similar, revealing that Napoli have been impressed with the 24-year-old’s recent displays and are ready to launch an assault for him.


Torino want £35m for Alessandro Boungiorno

However, the report makes it clear that Francesco Calzona’s men will face a ‘challenge’ for Buongiorno from AC Milan, Bayern Munich and ‘above all’ Tottenham.

The report says that Torino value the defender at €40m (£34.2m) and are not willing to offer any discounts to interested clubs.

The outlet says that the competition for the Italy international’s services is set to ‘trigger an auction’ for the player, with Napoli ‘increasingly intent’ on getting closer to Torino’s demands.

The publication adds that while Buongiorno is ready to leave Turin, his priority is to join a club which can offer him Champions League football next season.

Spurs Web Opinion

Neither Napoli nor Spurs look likely to be in the Champions League next season, which potentially offers an advantage to the likes of Milan and Bayern Munich. However, I doubt Buongiorno would be Spurs’ top centre-back target this summer.
