Alessandro Bastoni Sale A Big Loss For Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Tactically, Italian Media Argue

A sale of defender Alessandro Bastoni would be a significant loss for Inter coach Simone Inzaghi as far as implementing his preferred formation and style of play.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the 23-year-old has proved to be a crucial player at the back in the coach’s 3-5-2 system of play and that he would not be easy to replace.

A sale of Bastoni looks to be a more and more concrete possibility as Tottenham Hotspur step up their interest at the urging of coach Antonio Conte.

A sale of the 23-year-old would undoubtedly provoke a very negative reaction from fans, but Tuttosport suggest that the coach would be just as unhappy with seeing the defender leave.

Bastoni, who had already been a key figure in the back three under Antonio Conte, saw his role in the team and style of play evolve further under Inzaghi so that he was not just an important player in the buildup phase but also an extra weapon in the final third.

Finding a player who can defend at the same level as the 23-year-old would not necessarily be too difficult, but replacing his unique attributes of timing his attacking movements and his technical ability and composure in the final third could be very tough.
