Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts insists there is no chance of the club signing this summer.

Spurs are looking to bolster their squad after a disappointing campaign which saw the club finish seventh in the League and Jose Mourinho sacked days before the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City.

The north London club have been linked with making a move for Juventus defender Bonucci following the appointment of as director of football.

Bonucci has been among Italy’s star performers at Euro 2020 and made 26 Serie A appearances as Juve relinquished the title for the first time since 2010.

Roberts, who won the UEFA Cup and FA Cup during his time with Spurs, would be surprised to see the 34-year-old among new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s first signings.

He also feels Toby Alderweireld has shone for Belgium alongside former Spurs team-mate Jan Vertonghen, who left for Portuguese side Benfica last summer.

Speaking exclusively to TIF, Roberts said: “There’s no chance of Spurs signing Bonucci. Daniel Levy doesn’t go for 34-year-olds.

“Toby has been brilliant but I thought Jan Vertonghen was their best player in Belgium’s win over Portugal.

“If Spurs buy Bonucci, why did Levy let Vertonghen go? He gives you that balance on the left if you play three centre-halves.

“I just don’t get why we sell players when you see them go to another team and they play better.”
