Spurs fans have been discussing a transfer rumour which suggests that the North London club are ready to return to talks with Inter, in a deal which could see Diego Godin join the Lilywhites, with Jan Vertonghen potentially heading in the other direction. 

According to Italian news outlet CalcioMercato (via Daily Hotspur), Spurs could bring in the 34-year-old centre-back ahead of next season, whilst Vertonghen; who is out of contract in June, could join up with Christian Eriksen at the Serie A side. So far this season, the Uruguayan has made 16 appearances in the Italian top-flight; averaging a solid 6.95 rating.

How well can you remember these obscure Spurs players? - Who is this?

The former Atletico Madrid man only joined up with Antonio Conte’s side last summer and still has two years of his contract to run. However, it seems as if Spurs may be keen on bringing the £9 million rated man to the Premier League this summer, whilst Vertonghen’s near eight-year stint with the club seems to be nearing an end.

Who would you rather have in the squad?

Reaction from Spurs fans to the reported interest in Godin can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans clearly aren’t too convinced by the prospect of Godin playing in the Premier League, with several suggesting that he is too old and most likely past his best.

What do we think?

It is difficult to understand the rationale behind losing Vertonghen on a free transfer and bringing in someone two years older than him as his replacement.
