Schar has proved his ability in the Premier League and could be a smart signing, however, it is unlikely he would usurp either Jan Vertonghen or Toby Alderweireld, especially if the latter stays at the club.

Tottenham also have Davinson Sanchez and Juan Foyth on the books, and the pair have developed well this season.

It will be interesting to see if the London clubs make a serious bid for the Swiss defender in the summer, and a battle between the clubs cannot be ruled out.
