Tottenham may have received a boost in their rumoured chase of Timothy Castagne as the latest reports from Italy indicate that the defender has told Atalanta he will not be signing a new deal.
It was reported last week that Spurs were in talks with the Serie A side over the possibility of signing Castagne (TuttoMercatoWeb via Daily Mail). A move for the 24-year-old is said to appeal to Daniel Levy (Het Nieuwsblad via Sport Witness).
Corriere Della Sera now report that the full-back has informed Atalanta that he won’t sign an extension this summer.
The Italian club have a reported policy of not letting any player reach the final year of their contract and, since Castagne only has two years left on his deal, it is said that they are now planning on selling him this summer.
The report claims that they are ready to sell the Belgian for €20 million. While the report mentions Spurs as one of the suitors for Castagne, Napoli, Inter, and Roma are also said to be interested in the defender.
Spurs Web Opinion
Castagne will be a terrific signing for us, particularly at the reported price. I believe he will be a better acquisition than either Meunier or Aarons as he is a more competent defensively and his versatility will mean that he can cover at left-back too.
