Tottenham Hotspur fans believe that Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk’s impending sale to Liverpool has just helped to make Toby Alderweireld even more valuable.

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. 

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.
