Tottenham are interested in signing Atalanta and Belgium defender Timothy Castagne, according to Football Insider.

The 24-year-old, who has just one year left on his contract with the Italian’s, has featured 22 times for La Dea this season – impressing in the Champions League as Atalanta find themselves in the quarter-final stage in first ever campaign in Europe’s elite competition.

The report from the Insider suggests that Spurs are keeping a close eye on the right-back – with Jose Mourinho keen on boosting his full-back department.

Serge Aurier’s form remains unconvincing, whilst Tottenham’s only other recognised right-back, Kyle Walker-Peters, is out on loan at Southampton and has been linked with a permanent move to St Mary’s – meaning Mourinho is likely to need reinforces.

Castagne, who is wanted by a number of other Premier League and Serie A sides, can also play as a wing-back and further forward on either flank.

The former Gent defender, who moved to Italy in the 2017, has scored twice in seven Belgium caps.
