Craig Bellamy suggests that Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is good enough for Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Craig Bellamy has suggested to Sky Sports that Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld is good enough for Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea.

The former Liverpool and City forward has also predicted that Alderweireld will leave Tottenham.

Bellamy told Sky Sports about Alderweireld: “I don’t see him staying at Tottenham. He could get into Man City’s team, he could get into Liverpool’s team.

“I know Gomez has been brilliant, but you would still have him there, you would still have him at Liverpool. Chelsea would have him.”

No future at Tottenham Hotspur?

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has told Sky Sports that the North London outfit will extend Alderweireld’s current contract.

This means that the Belgium international will be at Spurs until 2020, but the 29-year-old defender will have a release clause of £25 million in his new deal for the summer of 2019, according to Sky Sports.

At that price, one can expect top clubs in England and in mainland Europe to make a move for Alderweireld in the summer of 2019.

True, Liverpool, City and Chelsea all have strong squads, but all of them will be aiming to sign quality players next summer, and at £25m, Alderweireld will almost certainly be on their radar.

Tottenham, Liverpool, City and Chelsea all are in the running for the Premier League title this season.
