Inter Milan linked with a move for Jan Vertonghen
Inter Milan target Jan Vertonghen from Tottenham to boost their defensive options.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Inter Milan are linked with a move for Tottenham centre-back Jan Vertonghen.
The 32-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Belgium international joined Tottenham from Ajax for a fee in the region of 12.5 million euros in July 2012. His contract expires in the summer of 2020
In 294 appearances for Tottenham, Vertonghen has managed to score 12 goals, and create 6 goals for his teammates.
The 32-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Belgium.
Given that his contract is expiring soon and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.
Antonio Conte wants to sign a new centre-back and Vertonghen is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
Vertonghen is a long-term target of Inter Milan and could be a decent addition for Antonio Conte’s side. There is no doubt that Jan Vertonghen will take Inter Milan’s defense to a different level.
According to Calciomercato, “Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan manager Antonio Conte is eager to sign English Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur’s veteran defender Jan Vertonghen. The Belgium international is in the final year of his contract with the North London-based club and is unlikely to sign an extension. As per the latest report, Conte is a big fan of Vertonghen and is keen to acquire the services of the 32-year-old—either in January or in the summer as a free agent.”

Signing the 32-year-old would be a masterstroke from Conte.
Stylistically, Vertonghen would be a great fit in Inter Milan.
How strong that interest is and whether Inter will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
