The defender is confident that a move can take place after the European Championships and Spurs are said to be ‘unlikely to stand in his way’ of a potential departure.
Is Alderweireld still Spurs' best defender?
Royal Antwerp are interested in Alderweireld, while clubs in Spain and Italy are also looking at the Belgian. It has been stated that his wage of £100,000 per week could put off would-be suitors.
This news was posted on Twitter by The Spurs Express. Many Tottenham fans made their opinions clear about this.
What did Spurs fans make of this news?
“Isn’t his contract up this Summer? It’s time for him to go; he’s been great but time moves on.”
“I think we need to get rid of the majority of the Poch era it feels like there’s too many burnt bridges in the team.”
“Love Toby but it’s probably time to leave.”
In the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, Alderweireld was Tottenham’s highest-rated central defender as he grabbed a rating of 6.86 while playing 25 times in the top flight (as per WhoScored).
It shows that he can still be a very capable defender and he might be worth keeping around at Spurs. But since he wants to leave and his contract expires in 2023, Spurs could sell him this summer and earn a decent fee from his sale.
