A report from Spanish outlet Sport has hinted that Barcelona could make a move for Jan Vertonghen this summer, with the report noting that the Tottenham Hotspur defender is a player the Catalan club have always liked.
Vertonghen’s future with Spurs continues to look to be in some doubt. As noted by Sport, his contract with the Premier League side expires at the end of the season.
Of course, there is so much uncertainty right now. And that surely makes making any plans beyond the coming months almost impossible.
Nevertheless, Sport has hinted that Vertonghen could be offered the chance to move to the Nou Camp next season.
The report notes that Barca are aware of his contract situation. And it is claimed that the Belgian is a player the La Liga giants have always been fans of.
TBR View – Barca interest will surely surprise Tottenham fans
It remains to be seen if Barcelona’s reported admiration for the 32-year-old leads to an offer being made.
But it will surely come as a big surprise to many that Barcelona are monitoring his situation.
There is no question that Vertonghen has been an incredible signing for Tottenham. And he has been a fantastic servant in the Premier League.
But his form has been a concern for a significant period now. And there will surely be plenty of Spurs fans who reluctantly accept that it is probably time to let him go this summer.
So it will be very interesting to see whether Barca do make an offer once the situation surrounding his future becomes a little clearer.
