Chelsea keen on big summer swoop for one of the Premier League’s best players

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to strengthen in the close season and will be looking to offload a number of their fringe players, however, fans in the Transfer Tavern will be concerned with where some of them could end up.

Spurs will be looking to add a number of names to their squad as they look to be able to compete across all competitions when they move into their new home, however, Toby Alderweireld looks set to depart.

The 29-year-old defender has rejected a new deal that had been offered to him earlier on in the year and his future has remained doubtful ever since. The Belgium international has rarely featured for Mauricio Pochettino, although he has been injured for a lot fo the campaign and is believed to be set for a new home.

The Sun are claiming bitter rivals Chelsea are preparing to make a move for the centre-back, who is valued by Spurs at around £45million, with many of the locals feeling that could be a bargain for the Blues as Alderweireld is still widely considered as one of the best in the Premier League. Spurs will want to cash in on him now, rather than let his deal run out and lose out on a huge sum of money.

Landlord’s Verdict

Tottenham fans in the Tavern will be disappointed that the club are preparing to sell Alderweireld and would be hoping he does not end up at a rival like Chelsea, however, a number of the punters will realise that £45m is a good amount of money for a defender who does not seemingly want to be there after the World Cup.

Spurs fans – what do you make of Chelsea’s interest in Alderweireld? Let us know below!
