Daniel Levy Flies to Spain as Spurs Chase Chelsea Target

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is keen to land Atlético Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld this summer, so much so that he is set to fly out to the Spanish capital himself to try wrap up a deal for the Belgian international, according to a Belgian football journalist.

Kristof Terruer confirmed the news on Twitter, from Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws this morning:

Toby Alderweireld spent last season on loan at Southampton in the Premier League and has been linked with a transfer to three English sides this summer – the Saints, Spurs and Premier League champions Chelsea.

The London Evening Standard reported yesterday that Tottenham were looking to secure a £14 million deal for the highly-rated Belgian.

Tottenham are reported as being the preferred destination of the 26-year-old as speculation linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge have died down.

Defensive additions are high on Mauricio Pochettino’s agenda this summer as the 53 goals conceded by his side last season were the most of any teams in the top 13 in the Premier League.

Only Queens Park Rangers, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Leicester City conceded more goals than Spurs in 2014-15.

      He didn’t say that he would prefer Southampton, he said that Toby would “like to stay” and that he’s hopeful he would…not exactly nailed on, is it. Wouldn’t be too confident just yet if I were you!
