Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni is on the radar of Spanish giants Real Madrid ahead of the upcoming transfer window according to a report from Spanish news outlet Fichajes.
Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is targeting reinforcements for his back-line and the recently turned 21-year-old is understood to be on his wishlist.
Bastoni is however not Los Blancos top target to strengthen the heart of the defence with the report stating that it is in fact Juventus’ Matthijs de Ligt.
If unable to sign de Ligt from the reigning Italian champions, Real Madrid would be more than happy to sign Bastoni instead.
Bastoni is in the midst of his breakthrough season with Inter which has come two years on from him joining in a circa €30 million deal from fellow Serie A side Atalanta.
This term the highly rated defender has made 17 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored a single goal.
