Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report that claimed Toby Alderweireld’s agents have been in talks with other clubs.
According to a report by De Telegraaf, PSV Eindhoven have contacted Alderweireld’s agents regarding a move for the £18 million-rated defender, however, on a recent episode of the Kick-off podcast (via De Telegraaf) it was claimed that if Ajax were to make a move for the 31-year-old, PSV would have no chance of landing the centre-back.
It is also reported that PSV are hoping to sign the defender for free in the summer, which, it is said, is something that Tottenham are not prepared to consider.
So far this season, Alderweireld has highly impressed over his 11 Premier League appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side, scoring one goal as well as making an average of 1.8 tackles, 0.3 interceptions and 5.2 clearances per game, culminating in an average WhoScored match rating of 6.97 – ranking him as the club’s fifth-best performer in the top flight.
And, after the news of interest in Alderweireld was shared on Twitter by The Spurs Express, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing furious at the idea of their club letting the centre-back leave.
Should Spurs let Alderweireld leave?
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding Toby Alderweireld?
“Why does he want to leave all of a sudden?”
“The guys a Rolls Royce. A fine Whiskey, gets better with age and i’d love to see him retire at White Hart Lane”
“Was he promised a free transfer to a lesser league? I doubt it. Not a Levy deal.”
“Quite surprised by this. Despite his age I didn’t imagine Toby leaving quite so soon. Probably been our most consistent CB this season…”
“Should keep him”
“Mate. You’re better than this.”
“No way we let our best CB leave on a free deal after he recently signed a contract”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Tottenham fans do not want to see Alderweireld leave the club any time soon, with many questioning why Spurs would let the defender leave on a free transfer, while others stated they want to see the 31-year-old retire at their club.
