A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the latest transfer report regarding Jan Vertonghen’s future, as per the Evening Standard.
According to the report, the Spurs defender is on the radar of Serie A side Inter Milan, who signed Christian Eriksen from the North London club in January.
Vertonghen’s contract at Tottenham expires at the end of the season and there has been no indication that he will follow in Toby Alderweireld’s footsteps and sign a new deal at Spurs.
Inter have snapped up several players from the Premier League in the past year, with Eriksen joining the likes of Ashley Young, Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Victor Moses in switching from England to Italy.
According to the Evening Standard report, Antonio Conte – formerly of Chelsea – wants to strengthen his defence, highly-rated Milan Skriniar linked with the likes of Manchester City, and Vertonghen is in his sights as a free transfer in the summer.
The 32-year-old – who joined Spurs in 2012 for a reported £9.5million fee, according to The Guardian – has been free to speak to overseas clubs since January
Indeed, the Serie A title hopefuls are thought to have already made contact with the Belgian’s camp over a prospective move to the San Siro.
Here is what some Tottenham fans on social media have made of the report:
