La Liga giants want Tottenham star as defensive solution

Jan VertonghenThere are some worried faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern and they belong to Tottenham Hotspur fans.

Our Lilywhites regulars have just seen the claim from Metro, who seem to think that Barcelona are tracking one of their players.

After seeing Gareth Bale leave for Real Madrid last summer the White Hart Lane faithful are not too keen on seeing another top player leave for La Liga and this time it is Jan Vertonghen who is attracting interest.

The Belgian international defender has seen his future come into question over the last few months with his agent even admitting that there are a host of clubs out there and interested in his client’s signature.

Now it seems that the Catalan giants have joined that list, knowing full well that they are in dire need of at least one top central defender this summer and they seem to have added Vertonghen to their list of potential recruits.

With two years still to run on his current deal with the Lilywhites, Spurs have the upper hand should they wish to keep the 27-year-old, but his desire for Champions League football may see a move forced through.

Spurs fans. Would you consider selling the Belgian international should a huge offer come in for him or is Vertonghen simply too valuable on the field to let leave? Let us know your thoughts below.
