Tottenham after Ajax’s Vertonghen signatureTottenham after Ajax’s Vertonghen signature

Spurs has made an official approach for Ajax skipper Jan Vertonghen and is now battling rival Arsenal for the defender’s services.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reports that the Belgian’s agent has confirmed that negotiations have started over a €8 million deal to take Vertonghen to White Hart Lane.

“I think Tottenham are an amazing club and you see how well they are doing this season,” Vertonghen said. “I can’t say anything about whether there has been contact about a transfer but I think my game can be suited to English football.”
