Tottenham Hotspur fans do not appear keen on the idea of giving up Toby Alderweireld for Nicolo Zaniolo.
There has now been suggestions that Tottenham may be willing to offer a trade deal in a bid to sign the Italian midfielder.
But Tottenham fans are against the idea of parting company with Alderweireld.

25 million buyout clause and the idea they'll throw a young talent in as collateral is hilarious.....who made this one up— David bird (@bird96calamity) July 2, 2019

I would prefer to keep Toby, but if he wants to go, happy to sell him to a lesser club in return for a good player and some money— Oliver Collings (@oliver_collings) July 2, 2019
Personally, I would rather we keep Toby at all costs and move for Giovani Lo Celso if we lose Christian Eriksen.— Daily Hotspur (@Daily_Hotspur) July 2, 2019
nooo stop it right now, he is a class defender and partners jan perfectly— Taylor (@taylorskiii) July 2, 2019
we should be focusing on a right back, our central defence is fine
No no no— Hols (@HollieAgombar) July 2, 2019
Spurs are in a bit of a dilemma with Alderweireld due to his contractual situation.
The Belgian defender has just a year left on his deal with Spurs and has a £25 million release clause built into his contract.
Alderweireld has hinted that he wants to stay with Tottenham, but that means they could risk losing him on a free.
If Zaniolo does join Spurs he would help to strengthen a midfield which is already looking much better, with Tanguy Ndombele set to arrive very soon, as the Guardian have reported.
