Report: Tottenham-linked Jean-Paul Boetius to be sold by Feyenoord after contract impasse

Feyenoord, De Kuip

Alleged Tottenham target Jean-Paul Boetius will reportedly be sold by Feyenoord this summer.

According to De Telegraaf, Feyenoord will sell winger Jean-Paul Boetius this summer after failing to reach an agreement over a new contract.

Feyenoord have an extensive history of bringing through academy players, with the likes of Daryl Janmaat, Stefan De Vrij, Bruno Martins Indi, Leroy Fer, Georginio Wijnaldum and Salomon Kalou all coming through the ranks at De Kuip in recent years.

With stars like Terence Kongolo, Jordy Clasie and Tonny Vilhena currently in the side, the Rotterdam production line keeps on rolling - and Boetius certainly fits that bill.

The 21-year-old made his debut as a teenager under Ronald Koeman in 2012, and has been a mainstay of the Feyenoord side ever since.

11 goals and nine assists last season put Boetius in the spotlight, and even earned him a call-up to Louis van Gaal's Netherlands squad ahead of the World Cup last summer, earning his first cap against France in a friendly.

With five goals and four assists this term, Boetius hasn't quite been as impressive, but is still a highly-regard youngster - and the Daily Mail reported during the January transfer window that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino wanted to bring Boetius to the Premier League.

With inconsistency from Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend this season, Spurs may well want to bring in another winger - and if Pochettino still has his eye on Boetius, his chances of landing him may have just increased.

De Telegraaf report that Feyenoord are ready to sell Boetius this summer having failed to agree a new contract, partly down to the fact that he has a total of four agents, one of which is Jonathan Barnett, who represents former Spurs winger Gareth Bale.

With just one year left on his contract at De Kuip, Boetius could be on the move this summer - and De Telegraaf believe that the player's agents are pushing for a move to England, which would again play into the notion of him moving to Tottenham this summer.
