Spurs Transfer Rumours: Serie A outfit keen on defender, 24-year-old striker linked

Tottenham Hotspur are making the news even when the football on the pitch is suspended. We take a look at the latest Spurs transfer news and rumours of the day.

AS Roma keen on Jan Vertonghen

According to a report from Corriere dello Sport (h/t Sport Witness) AS Roma have been in contact with intermediaries to explore the possibility of signing Tottenham Hotspur star Jan Vertonghen this summer.

Vertonghen is in the final few months of his current contract with Spurs. His future has been subject of much transfer speculation, with serious interest from several clubs in Italy and Spain. AS Roma, though, have taken a step further, by getting in touch with representatives to test the waters.

Roma want Vertonghen as a replacement for on-loan star Chris Smalling. They have guaranteed that the Belgian will be a regular starter in Italy. However, wages could prove to be a problem in the deal, as per the report.

Benoit Badiashile identified as Vertonghen replacement

Tottenham are keeping tabs on AS Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile, as they eye the youngster a long-term replacement for Jan Vertonghen. This claims comes from Football Insider.

Badiashile has been compared to Napoli’s star defender Kalidou Koulibaly in the past. The 19-year-old has had an impressive campaign for the Principality outfit and will be available for a cut-price with transfer fees plummeting due to the coronavirus scare.

Roma striker Patrik Schick on Spurs’ radar

As per a report from Italian outlet La Roma 24, Tottenham are working on a deal to sign AS Roma striker Patrik Schick in the summer transfer window.

Schick is currently on loan at German club RB Leipzig, where he has scored seven goals and assisted three more in 19 appearances across all competitions. The Germans have the option to sign him permanently for a €29m fee, but are trying to reduce that fee due to the impact of the coronavirus on finances.

However, their request has been refused by Roma, thus allowing Tottenham to make an attempt to land him in the summer. Jose Mourinho & co. are already working on pushing the deal over the line as per the report.

Kalidou Koulibaly not interested in joining Tottenham

According to a report from Calciomercato, Napoli star Kalidou Koulibaly is not interested in joining Tottenham, despite the club’s efforts to try and sign him this summer.

The Senegalese international is widely expected to leave the club at the end of the season. And a number of clubs are interested in signing him, including Tottenham. As per the report, Spurs are ready to make a significant offer for the defender as well.

However, his heart is set on a move to a club where he can get regular Champions League football. That is not guaranteed at Tottenham at this point. Instead, Koulibaly is eyeing a move to the likes of Real Madrid, PSG or Barcelona.
