Tottenham Hotspur still need to add defensive reinforcements – and Inter Milan’s Stefan de Vrij appears to be a top target.

Fabio Paratici pulled off quite the coup over the summer by bringing Cristian Romero to Tottenham.

But let’s be honest here – Tottenham still need more defensive additions moving forward.

New boss Antonio Conte will be keen on centre back signings, and a reunion with De Vrij now looks possible.

Calciomercato report that Tottenham are now the favourites to sign De Vrij in 2022.

Inter are allegedly willing to sell De Vrij in order to reinvest cash in a younger defender, so Tottenham have a real shot at signing the Dutchman.

De Vrij worked under Conte at Inter and the duo won the Serie A title together last season.

A solid and dependable defender, De Vrij knows Conte’s style inside out and could help solidify the Tottenham back line.
