Liverpool are linked with a £60 million move for Van Dijk, with bookies suspending the betting on the move yesterday.
Van Dijk is now set to move to Anfield this summer, and Spurs fans feel that the fee could help them.
There have been slight murmurings that Alderweireld could look to depart Spurs this summer (London Evening Standard).
However, Van Dijk’s price has led to Tottenham fans feeling that Alderweireld is now worth at least £80 million, which puts him out of the price-range of most teams.
If Virgil van Dijk costs £60 millions i don't want to think how much Alderweireld costs.— The Shining Son (@shiny_son07) June 6, 2017
Van Dijk, £60m god only knows what Alderweireld would go for then!— Joseph Smith (@joesmith_26) June 5, 2017
sorry but if Van Dijk goes for £60m, Alderweireld is worth £120m+— Sam (@scjbirch) June 5, 2017
Van Dijk - £60 million the football world has gone mad... Toby Alderweireld must be worth £80-90 million then ....— Daniel (@DMain20) June 5, 2017
If Van Dijk is worth £60m then Alderweireld must be near £80m.— SW (@_Will30) June 5, 2017
ha ha ha - you missed out the 0's Toby worth at least twice as much as Van Dijk nearly typed VdV but that would be wrong! not same class— Russell Cox (@Russcox1808) June 5, 2017
@dannykellywords if Van Dijk is worth £60m what on earth are Toby & Jan worth !!!— Jonny Smith (@Jonny_hotspur) June 6, 2017
Alderweireld has been a revelation ever since signing for Spurs, and it would be a major shock if he did leave in the near future.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have promised to keep hold of their best players, as they plan for the future.
However, Van Dijk’s expected move may have just helped Spurs to safe-guard their asset.
