Agent of Barcelona target Jan Vertonghen (Spurs) says ‘a few teams have called him’ [Voetbalzone]
- July 10, 2014
After his solid World Cup for Belgium, slotting in admirably at left-back for Les Diabels Rouges, Spurs’ Jan Vertonghen has re-emerged on the radar of a number of clubs.
Belgian site Voetbalzone report that the player’s agent Mustapha Nakhli has declared:
“A few teams have called me.’
A long-time Barcelona target, and an avowed fan of the Catalans, there’s a strong possibility that Barca are one of the clubs Nakhli is referring to.
As Voetbalzone intimate, Barcelona’s prime defensive target is PSG’s Marquinhos, but with that avenue far from developed, the Cules are believed to see Vertonghen as an equally able centre-half to fill the Carles-Puyol-shaped hole left in the centre of their defence.
Having done so well at left-back, Barcelona are also believed to be attracted by his flexibility, though see him primarily as a centre-half.
