Our Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern are wondering what to make of the latest reports surrounding their star Belgian defender.
Toby Alderweireld has come back from injury and is now struggling to get a game back in the Spurs defence, as crazy as that would have sounded at the start of the campaign. Reports suggest that the Belgian could be on his way out of the club, and Daniel Levy is not one for giving up on an opportunity to cash in on a player in their prime.
However, many of the regulars in the back room believe it may be a smart move on Levy’s part to let the centre-back go in the summer.
Alderwerield seems to cut a frustrated figure at the moment after being left out of various squads and, despite all his excellence, perhaps the former Atletico Madrid stopper can now be seen as expendable. Yes, Tottenham really are that good these days.
