Toby Alderweireld 'tells Tottenham he wants to QUIT' and Spurs could approve transfer exit to fund rebuild

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD has reportedly told Tottenham he wants to quit the club this summer.

The Belgian centre-half joined Spurs in 2015 from Atletico Madrid after impressing before that on loan at Southampton.

He has played nearly 200 appearances for the North London side and helped them reach the Champions League final in 2019.

Now The Athletic claims his time with Spurs may soon be over and that he is searching for a new side.

Harry Kane’s future still remains unclear and this latest development will not help new boss Nuno Espirito Santo with his pre-season plans.

Tottenham have been in the market for a new centre-half and reportedly had a £15.5million offer for Takehiro Tomiyasu rejected by Bologna.

SunSport exclusively revealed last week that Spurs are confident they will land the Japanese defender this summer.

The North London club felt their initial bid of £12.9m plus an extra £2.6m in add-ons would be enough to clinch the 22-year-old.

But Bologna are holding out for an extra £1.5m for Tomiyasu, taking the price to £17.2m.

They have also been keeping tabs on Sevilla's Jules Kounde and Lyon’s ex-Fulham loanee Joachim Andersen.

One potential destination for Alderweireld could be his hometown club Royal Antwerp.

The 32-year-old has a tattoo of the city’s Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren cathedral on his right arm.

Alderweireld is currently preparing to face Portugal this evening in the quarter finals of Euro 2020.
