Atletico Madrid have scouted Tottenham target playing in Belgium, says Romano

Atletico Madrid scout Tottenham target Arthur Vermeeren of Royal Antwerp

In what could come as a jolt to the transfer plans of Tottenham Hotspur, La Liga giants Atletico Madrid have entered the fray to sign Arthur Vermeeren of Royal Antwerp who is an active transfer target for the Lilywhites.

The 18-year-old has two senior caps for Belgium already. Vermeeren is a versatile central midfielder who can slot into defensive midfield areas seamlessly as well. 66 appearances at club level for his age including games in the UEFA Champions League stands as a testament to Vermeeren’s playing maturity that goes beyond his age.

Mostly playing out of central midfield, he has three goals and eight assists to boot. Ange Postecoglou’s side has been facing numerous injury issues this season, mainly in midfield and that is one of the core reasons why Vermeeren is one of our transfer targets. However, Atleti’s interest that comes from Fabrizio Romano via Twitter might prove to be a problem for Spurs.

Vermeeren’s current deal at Antwerp lasts until 2026 (Transfermarkt). Atletico Madrid’s interest is a testament to the player’s growing reputation and potential. As one of the elite clubs in Spain and on the global stage, Atleti’s involvement in the transfer saga certainly elevates the competition for Vermeeren’s signature. The Spanish giants have scouted the midfielder multiple times, indicating a keen interest in securing his services.

What next in the saga?

For Tottenham, it now surely becomes imperative to act swiftly and decisively in their pursuit of Vermeeren. The club must surely initiate discussions, lodge competitive bids, and explore personal terms to ensure they remain ahead of any other contenders, including Atletico Madrid.

Success in securing Vermeeren’s services hinges on Tottenham’s ability to act with urgency and precision. The club’s commitment to fortifying the midfield and addressing injury concerns will stand tested in the coming few weeks.
