Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been reacting on Twitter after a post provided an update on the club’s pursuit of Jannik

Jose Mourinho is reportedly targeting a centre-back ahead of this summer’s window as the Portuguese boss looks to bolster his side’s shaky defence.

Inter’s Milan Skriniar has been sounded out as the first-choice by the boss, but, according to The Express, a move for Denmark international Vestergaard has been fast-tracked after Newcastle United’s late equaliser over the weekend.

Joe Willock’s 85th-minute strike means Tottenham have dropped an incredible 15 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, and the Southampton man is seen as a possible solution to the north London outfits issues at the back, although it doesn’t seem as though the fans share Mourinho’s confidence in the 28-year-old.

“And that’s why we will chill mid-table”

“Great stuff, another CB with the turning speed of the titanic”

“The bargain nonsense is why we keep bringing in players who wouldn’t necessarily improve the team.”

@mikyonehotspur

“Good player for Southampton but never meant to play on a higher level. Be serious spurs and buy world quality players”

@jamesOjames929

“This is why we’ll never be taken seriously. Decent player though.”

@RemRemHollywood

“Another massive downgrade from the levels of and Toby.”

Vestergaard has been enjoying a fabulous season with the south coast club, as his impressive 7.09/10 WhoScored rating shows, and he could be a relatively cheap alternative to Skriniar.
