Tottenham linked midfielder: No decision until after World Cup

Tottenham WHL

Switzerland international Valon Behrami insists he won't decide on his club future until after the World Cup.

Valon Behrami appeared to be headed for Inter, but Tottenham will still have a chance to sign him this summer.

The Napoli midfielder was reportedly in talks with Inter and the Nerazzurri seemed to be closing in on an agreement.

However, it appears that Behrami has slowed things down, possibly hoping that an impressive World Cup campaign with Switzerland will bring in some interesting offers.

"We will see about my future," the 29-year-old told Swiss website

"Will I be in Milan or Naples? I have never said anything about that because I am just thinking about the World Cup where I will get to play with an incredible group, the strongest Swiss side of all time."

Behrami has been linked with Tottenham, who are also said to be interested in another Napoli and Switzerland man Blerim Dzemaili.

While it had seemed that Inter were in pole position to sign Behrami, who played for West Ham between 2008 and 2011, it now appears that the race to sign him is open.

Napoli boss Rafa Benitez doesn't see Behrami as important for his first-team next season, but the versatile wide man is well regarded in Italy.
