Southampton fans are eager to sell Jannik Vestergaard after it was reported Tottenham want to sign him this summer, with a transfer value of around £25m.
The Saints will be preparing for a big campaign as they look to improve on their 15th place Premier League finish from last term. Vestergaard has spent the summer away with Denmark at the European Championships, and he was a key member of that side that reached the semi-finals before losing 2-1 to England at Wembley.
Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for the 28-year-old and, according to The Daily Mail, the London outfit have been in talks with Southampton to sign Vestergaard.
They are said to be looking at the former Borussia Monchengladbach central defender as an alternate if they can’t sign their other targets, with the player valued at £25m by Southampton.
Do you want Vestergaard to leave?
The news was shared on Twitter by @SaintsExtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the Gers supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Vestergaard news
“I’d take £25M for Vestergaard. He has qualities, but he is desperately slow, both in terms of pace and changing direction”
“25m I think is good business considering he signed for 18m and has been with us for a while now (bearing in mind the first season, season and a half he was pony) On the other hand he had a solid European tournament this year so that figure of 25m could rise if we push hard enough”
“£25 million. Thanks very much!”
“If we get 25 mill for him, then snap their hand off.”
“Snap their hand off at £25 million”
“Take the money and run, £25M for a player that slow is great business.”
