Tottenham Hotspur have identified Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah as the ideal candidate to replace Toby Alderweireld if the Belgian is sold ahead of next season, according to reports.

Alderweireld is reportedly heading for the Spurs exit after failing to agree a new contract with the club, and Tah is one player that the Premier League club have been tracking closely.

The Spurs defender should have no shortage of takers and the North Londoners are likely to take a dip in the transfer market if the 29-year-old is sold in summer.

Davinson Sanchez was drafted in from Ajax at the start of the season and the young Colombian has hugely impressed in the absence of Alderweireld. And as the Belgian has spent much of this season on the sidelines due to injury, Sanchez has gradually established himself as the first choice centre-back, alongside Jan Vertonghen.

And now the Mirror reports that Spurs have been tracking Tah’s progress closely and could make a move for him in case Alderweireld refuses to sign a new deal.

Alderweireld’s current contract has a clause which could see him leave Tottenham for a cut-price fee of £25.4million– a clause that will become active in the summer of 2019.

The Belgian turned 29 three days ago and Spurs would be willing to offload him next summer in order to raise some cash rather wait for one more year and sell him at a relatively cheaper cost.

The report adds should Spurs think on the prospect of signing Tah, the defender would cost £35million.

Tah has established himself as one of the finest young centre-backs across Europe. The Bayer Leverkusen defender stands at six-foot-four and is a physically imposing figure blessed with good feet. Tah is a solid defender and equally adept at passing the ball from the back and making top decisions under pressure situations.

With such a burly frame, the German surprisingly boasts a different level of agility and keeps the ability to maraud forward with the ball.

At just 22, Tah has already played for the German national team and has made over 121 senior appearances since making his debut for Hamburg in 2013.

Spurs should do whatever it is needed to stop Alderweireld from leaving the club and even if the effort goes in vain, it would make sense for them to make a move for the promising Tah, who has a sky-high potential and could develop into one of the best modern-day centre-backs as years roll by.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
