The Football Transfer Tavern has been left shocked with the latest claims arriving in the bar.
Daniel Jones from Metro reports that Liverpool will target a move for Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen if the Reds qualify for the Champions League next season.
The Merseysiders are looking increasingly likely to return to Europe’s elite competition next season, following another impressive win at Southampton that kept them firmly in the title race.
The Belgian international last week has hinted that he could, along with keeper Hugo Lloris, depart White Hart Lane if the Lilywhites fail to secure Champions League football next term.
Tim Sherwood’s team claimed a vital three points yesterday against Cardiff City in their quest for the top four, but the club remains four points off Manchester City in fourth and it looks to be an upward struggle for Spurs now.
Vertonghen who has been a huge hit since joining from Ajax in 2012, would be a massive loss for the White Hart Lane club but it does seem feasible that a move to Anfield may be on the cards.
We’re not sure what to make of these reports but what do you think? Let us know your thoughts below.
