Tottenham Hotspur are planning to hold talks with defender Toby Alderweireld in the hope that he will accept the offer of a new £120,000 per week contract at the club, according to reports.
Alderweireld, who has featured in both of Spurs’ opening Premier League games so far this season, has previously been the subject of alleged interest from Manchester United.
Tottenham kept hold of the 30-year-old this summer – despite a clause in his contract allowing him to be sold for a cut-price fee – and now Football Insider says that Spurs want to tie the Belgian international down to a new deal.
The source says that Alderweireld is unlikely to receive offers from clubs on the near continent in the coming weeks, with the transfer window open until the end of this month for other European sides.
It is said that the £120,000 per week deal – more than double what the centre-back earns now – will be enough to persuade him to remain in North London.
