Football.London correspondent Rob Guest has now mooted chairman Daniel Levy to strike a ‘decent’ Tottenham Hotspur deal for Inter Milan star Stefan de Vrij this summer.
The Lowdown: Spurs in mix…
The Netherlands international, out of contract in 2023, has been at the centre of recent reports linking him with a San Siro exit and Spurs are firmly in contention to bring him to the Premier League.
Rumours of transfer chief Fabio Paratici and the club’s interest can be traced as far back as November with those links continuing long into 2022.
Now, a source closer to home in football.london reporter Guest has mooted a potentially ‘decent’ Spurs deal for the 30-year-old who could save the club ‘millions’.
The Latest: Guest moots ‘decent’ de Vrij deal…
The journalist, citing chairman Daniel Levy, believes Tottenham’s chairman ‘could possibly get a decent deal‘ to sign de Vrij due to his contractual situation.
Guest also believes that the centre-back may be a ‘cheaper option’ due to his age with also preferring experienced figureheads.
As a result, the reporter backs that de Vrij is a target Paratici and co may ‘consider’ as the window looms.
The Verdict: Make a move…
All of these factors suggest Conte’s ex-mainstay for Inter is not only a financially viable signing, but also one which could tick many factors in terms of a seasoned, quality addition.
Hailed as a ‘world-beater’ by former Leeds striker Noel Whelan, another pundit in ex-Spurs defender Alan Hutton has also claimed that de Vrij could be the ‘perfect‘ player to partner Cristian Romero in a back-three.
Recent reports have suggested that the Nerazzurri could green-light his sale for as little as £15 million, arguably very little considering his reputation and glowing endorsements.
He could well be the answer for Spurs as Conte eyes a major overhaul.
