Metro have a rather alarming claim for Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that one of the club’s star players could well be set to leave in the summer.
As one of our punters points out, being in the Europa League has proved to be much more of a curse than a blessing for the North London club, who lost yet again after playing on a Thursday night.
Now it seems that unless they manage to get into the top four and thus have Champions League football next term, Jan Vertonghen could well be set for the exit door.
The versatile Belgian defender claimed: “Those are always difficult questions. What I want is to play in the Champions League with Tottenham, so, hopefully, I will get there this year.
“I don’t complain about anything. Let’s see after the end of the season and after the World Cup.”
He added: “For me, the Norwich game was just not good enough and we need to raise up our game to compete with the other top teams.”
Given the gap between the North London side and Liverpool now, we think the player could well be on the move this summer!
Will Tottenham’s best players such as Hugo Lloris and Vertonghen look to move on should Spurs fail to secure Champions League qualification once again? Let us know your thoughts below.
