Tottenham Hotspur fans are not happy with the rumours that Jan Vertonghen could yet join Bayer Leverkusen this summer.
Vertonghen has, rather bizarrely, been dropped from Tottenham’s starting line-up in the opening weeks of the campaign.
With the Belgian international having just a year left on his current deal at Hotspur Way, there has now been suggestions that Mauricio Pochettino’s side could offload the centre-back.
Spurs fans are certainly not impressed with the rumours that Vertonghen could depart, as they feel he has a crucial part to play still, even if Pochettino isn’t currently picking him.
That would be crazy to let him go now the window is shut— markmcallister (@markmac2004) August 29, 2019

If this happens we KNOW there is something big going on in the locker room. Would be a downgrade for him— OW❗️ (@NCSpursCOYS) August 29, 2019

Pochettino faces a tough decision over whether to bring Vertonghen back into Tottenham’s line-up this weekend for their match against Arsenal.
Davinson Sanchez has been shaky in Spurs’s first few fixtures this season, and there is a sense that Vertonghen would offer the Lilywhites far more stability at the back.
Tottenham are under huge pressure to pick up a victory against Arsenal, otherwise serious question will be asked after a poor start.
