Jan Vertonghen’s wage demands warding off potential suitors

According to a report from The Times, Serie A side Fiorentina are set to back out of a deal to sign Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen because of his wage demands.

The 33-year-old Vertonghen is in the final leg of his contract with Tottenham. He has time and again dropped hints of a summer move away from the club.

More recently, it was even claimed that the Belgian international had turned down a contract extension offer from Spurs and may not even finish the 2019/20 campaign with the club.

Given his experience and the availability on a free transfer, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he is generating a lot of interest. However, his wage demands are reportedly proving to be a stumbling block as per the report.

Vertonghen is reportedly demanding a pay packet in excess of £3.5m per year. This has led to Fiorentina backing out of their attempts to land the 33-year-old defender.

Vertonghen has been with Tottenham since 2012 and has been one of our best players during the period. However, his powers have been on the wane this season, with injuries also playing a spoilsport.

As things stand, Vertonghen’s exit from our clubs seems like a given. It now remains to be seen if he agrees a short-term extension to see the season out or leaves at the end of the month, when his current deal runs out.
