Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld.
The Belgium international wasted no time making an impression on these shores after joining Southampton on loan from Atletico Madrid. A stellar campaign with the Saints saw his stock rise considerably, his subsequent transfer to Tottenham was testament to that.
However, despite firmly establishing himself among the best defenders in the country during his time in North London, Fichajes claim that Tottenham are yet to make Alderweireld a contract offer that reflects his importance to the side.
That has, as per Fichajes, left him reluctant to put pen-to-paper and extend his stay at White Hart Lane. That could play into Chelsea’s hands.
Fichajes believe that the Premier League champions have already opened negotiations over signing Alderweireld. Tottenham would undoubtedly be unwilling to sell, but it’s great to see that the club are showing this sort of ambition. This is one to keep an eye on.
