Report: Spurs fans could finally have their wish as Chiriches is linked with Basel

Vlad Chiriches

The Tottenham Hotspur man could be jetting off to Swizerland.

The deal all Spurs fans would love to see could finally be on - as Vlad Chiriches has been linked with a move to FC Basel, according to the London Evening Standard.

It isn't quite as exciting as news of a major new signing but, for many Tottenham supporters, seeing the Romanian leave White Hart Lane could be the next best thing.

Indeed, Chiriches has struggled badly since moving to north London and the £7 million asking price the Standard claim Spurs have set seems like good business considering the defender's poor form for the club.

The 25-year-old is said to be apprehensive about leaving for a weaker league, however, potentially needing persuading, while he may also be waiting to see if AS Roma will revive their interest in him, as per the Standard's report.

But, if Chiriches needs any persuading, all he needs to do is ask the Tottenham fans! There will probably be quite a few willing to pay for his flight to Switzerland...

Chiriches' most recent appearance for Mauricio Pochettino's men ended with him being sent off during a 3-0 defeat at Stoke City.
