Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are slightly concerned by the lack of rumours involving their club and things are about to get worse it seems.
The Evening Standard reckons that Jan Vertonghen could be on his way out of White Hart Lane this summer with Barcelona said to be preparing a move for the Belgian international.
Vertonghen’s agent has admitted a move is likely, with ‘several clubs’ reportedly showing an interest.
Mustapha Nakhli, the Belgian’s representative told Het Nieuwsblad: “Several teams are interested in Jan.
“I cannot confirm or deny whether Barcelona are one of them. Tottenham is not a small club. It’s too soon to give them an answer. Several clubs have registered their interest in Jan. We’ll see.”
Barcelona have made a new defender their next priority, having splashed out £75 million on Luis Suarez last week.
As well as Vertonghen, the Catalan giants have targeted Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels who played a starring role for Germany during their victorious World Cup campaign.
