Jan Vertonghen’s contract expires in June

Vertonghen has hinted previously that he would be open to an exit this summer. Recent reports have claimed that negotiations over a new deal have hardly gone according to plans and the seasoned campaigner might not even stay till the end of the current season, but leave as soon as his deal expires in June.

Vertonghen has courted plenty of interest from a host of clubs in the Serie A. The aforementioned report claims that Inter Milan and AS Roma are leading the chasing pack. Fiorentina and Napoli are also pondering over making a move for the Belgian.

Vertonghen joined Tottenham back in 2012 from Dutch outfit Ajax in a £12m deal. During his time the club, the Belgian international grew into one of the most reliable defenders in the Premier League. Till date he has racked up 311 appearances for Spurs, scoring 14 goals in the process.

Over the course of the 2019/20 campaign though, the Belgian international has shown signs of age catching up with him. Nevertheless, having someone of his experience and quality would have been beneficial for the club as Jose Mourinho looks to usher in a new era at the club.
