Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Serie A giants prioritise Vertonghen? Sandro's agent cagey over move

Jan Vertonghen

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Serie A giants Roma are reportedly interested in signing Jan Vertonghen from Tottenham this summer.

The Belgian is thought to be keen on playing Champions League football next season, refusing to rule out a move away from the club for European football earlier in the campaign.

Il Messaggero reports Vertonghen as a top transfer priority for the Italian side after the World Cup.

Sandro’s agent has created further speculation that the player could leave White Hart Lane this summer.

The 25-year-old has been linked with an exit due to an apparent fallout with manager Tim Sherwood.

“Sandro came back very well this year and how many teams are revamping their rosters for next season? Who knows? There might be some official interest from clubs,” Luiz Paolo Chignali told the Daily Star.

Hugo Lloris has taken a swipe at the club’s form this season claiming it would be ‘difficult to do worse’ next year.

Spurs haven’t been in great form over the second half of the campaign but have retained a league position similar to recent seasons.

“It will be difficult to do worse, especially against the top four or five teams - we conceded a lot of bad defeats. This season we had sometimes the feeling that we gave up,” said the Frenchman.
