Will Vertonghen be on the move this month?
Both Napoli and Ajax are reportedly targeting a move for Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen this month, with the Belgian’s contract set to expire in the summer.
Vertonghen has been a mainstay in Tottenham’s side for a while now.
The Belgian was pivotal in Spurs’ run to the Champions League final last season, and even played at left-back during the campaign.
However, Vertonghen is yet to agree a new deal with Tottenham, and could leave the club for nothing in the summer.
Now, both Napoli and former club Ajax are being linked with a move for Vertonghen.
Napoli and Ajax readying moves
According to the Telegraph, both clubs want to sign Vertonghen.
However, despite the Belgian being available in the summer, both clubs want to sign him this month.
According to their report: ‘Napoli and Ajax are ready to move for Jan Vertonghen and tempt Tottenham into selling the Belgium centre-back before losing him on a free transfer in the summer.’
It’s claimed that Gennaro Gattuso is targeting a central defender this month.
The Telegraph also claim that Ajax are ‘assessing their options at centre-back as Daley Blind has been diagnosed with a heart condition.’
As a result, they have seemingly turned to Vertonghen as a potential option.
Finally, it’s claimed that while Vertonghen has been in Mourinho’s plans, there has been no breakthrough in terms of a new Spurs contract.
