Speaking to Sportitalia, Tullio Tinti revealed: "He [Bastoni] is certainly a big fan of the team he plays for, so he will happily remain at Inter.
"However, he is also a professional. This is football and he has to adjust. It's clear he is very happy to play for Inter and feels this jersey like a tattoo on his skin."
Though there is hesitancy on Bastoni's side, Tottenham are confident they can get a deal done with the Antonio Conte knowing the Italian well from their time together at Inter.
The 23-year-old has since developed into a key player for the club and was instrumental in their Scudetto victory under Antonio Conte in 2020/21.
