- REVEALED: Chelsea set hefty asking price for want-away player
Chelsea are reportedly in the running to sign Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld.
Alderweireld is one of the best defenders in the Premier League. He, alongside Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta, has been a standout performer in terms of both quality and consistency.
A player of his quality deserves to be winning silverware, and we all know that he’s not going to get the opportunity to do that with Tottenham.
The Belgian may depart Spurs in search of both success and financial reward. Daniel Levy is reluctant to break his wage structure, even in order to satisfy his stars.
According to the Express, both Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in signing the 29-year-old. However, Spurs will not make a decision on his future until after the World Cup.
How genuine Chelsea’s interest in signing Alderweireld will be seen in the coming weeks. Don’t be surprised if we make a cheeky bid to prise him away from North London.
