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.

And, according to Kicker, Leverkusen are now interested in signing the Spurs defender.

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.

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.
