The Belgian has been the centre of attention over the past few months and it appears he will end his eight-year-spell with Spurs in the transfer window.
The 33-year-old is no longer a first-choice selection in Jose Mourinho’s starting lineup and the defender will be available as a free agent when his deal runs out.
Former Spurs director Franco Baldini is set to return to Rome and he has been in contact with his old club over a move for the veteran in the upcoming transfer window.
It is fair to say that Vertonghen has been a loyal servant of the club, but since he has failed to maintain his status as a regular starter alongside Toby Alderweireld, the board should allow him to leave at the earliest opportunity.
Indeed, Mourinho could use the remaining fixtures to play around with different combinations at the back, as he is keen to add to Spurs’ collection of silverware in the future.
Tottenham fans, do you believe Daniel Levy should allow Jan Vertonghen to leave in the summer? Let us know down below!
