Tottenham: Source shares Stefan de Vrij links -Premier League

Tottenham have been linked with a January move for Inter defender Stefan de Vrij, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Summer talks

Spurs added to their defensive ranks this summer by bringing in Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal.

However, the duo are yet to resolve the club’s defensive issues, with Tottenham shipping 16 goals in their first 10 Premier League games – the same number as 18th place Burnley.

Spurs were in talks with Inter over the summer regarding a move for De Vrij, but as we know, a move never materialised.

And it now seems as if Antonio Conte is eyeing a reunion with the Netherlands international, who likes to chip in with goals from set pieces – he has netted 24 times during his club career.

The manager was officially appointed on Tuesday and is rumoured to be eyeing up transfer targets already.

The Latest: Source shares fresh links

Football Insider shared a story on Tuesday morning about a potential move for the 29-year-old after being informed by a Spurs source.

The site suggested that the centre-back is a top January priority following discussions with Fabio Paratici.

The managing director is confident a winter window transfer can now be finalised following the arrival of Conte.

The Verdict: No brainer?

De Vrij, labelled as a ‘monster’ by former Lazio teammate Mauricio, was a regular under Conte for Inter Milan during their 2020/21 title-winning season, so bringing him to north London appears to be a no brainer.

Conte of course knows what he’ll get from the centre-back who has Champions League, Europa League and international experience.

De Vrij has also outperformed every Tottenham centre-back this season, as per WhoScored, so you’d expect he’d be key in Conte’s defence, should he follow the Italian to London, perhaps
