The Daily Mirror has reported on Thursday that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Diego Godin this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his defensive ranks.
The 34-year-old has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Inter Milan this term.
He only arrived at San Siro during the summer, so it remains to be seen if the Nerazzurri are willing to let the Uruguay international leave once the campaign concludes.
But Tottenham are reportedly planning to attempt to try and bring him to the Premier League.
And perhaps, it could be a current Spurs player who could help Mourinho out by leaving the club this summer.
Jan Vertonghen’s future continues to have a large question mark hanging over it. As reported by the London Evening Standard, the Belgian’s deal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expires this summer. It is noted by Spotrac that he currently earns £100,000-a-week.
It was also noted by the Evening Standard back in February that Inter are one of the teams keen on signing Vertonghen. The Serie A side have reportedly already made contact with the 32-year-old about a move.
Should Vertonghen head to Milan this summer, Antonio Conte is surely going to much more inclined to let Godin go.
So if Vertonghen does join Inter once his contract expires and Godin ultimately heads in the opposite direction, perhaps Mourinho may have his current player to partially thank.
