Deal Close – How Spurs will Line up with Alderweireld

Toby Alderweireld SouthamptonTottenham have secured two key defensive signings already but are arguably close to completing the most important one.

As previously published, Spurs are in pole position to hire the services of Belgian international Toby Alderweireld.

Standard reported yesterday that Spurs are closing in on the Atletico Madrid star as chairman Levy is set to fly to Spain this week and hold talks for his signature. The mentioned price tag as per the provided link is 10 million pounds.

Toby is a versatile star and over the years he has successfully played as an central defensive midfielder, right back as well as in central defense. Saints had the second best defense in the league last season and Toby was a pivotal member of their back line as a center back.

As far as Spurs are concerned, they recently signed a right back in Kieran Trippier and a central defender in the form of Kevin Wimmer.

However, Wimmer is supposed to be an under-study with his lack of PL experience and if Alderweireld arrived, he will be starting as RCB for Tottenham alongside compatriot Jan Vertonghen.

Here is how Spurs will line up with Toby Alderweireld.

    I like the look of the central pairing of Vertonghen and Alderweireld with Lloris behind them. Trippier is a relatively unknown quantity and any team with Rose at left back will give opponents opportunities down their right flank as he I caught out of position time and time again. Would much prefer to see Davies there. COYS

    Rose was one of the best left backs in the Bpl last year a lot more tighter than the year before Davies is the one who made some mistakes last year they are both pushing each other to get better though and I don’t see much difference just rose pace really

    buy raboit to partner bentalab in midfield. sell dembele for 12 million and sell capoue for 8 million and buy raboit for 20 million.

    if benteke is not interested leave him. Liverpool must waste money.

    sign lucciano veitto for his price of 21 million. to partner harry kane.

    and give adeabyor plus cash to crystal palace and swap bolassie for his price.
    better than benteke. he is in top form. so that we can make midfield strong.

    sell dembele for 12 million to chelsea and sell capoue for 7 million to Watford
    and with this money plus give Lennon for 7million and kaboul for 3 million to Everton and swap James Mccarthy.

    with levy’s other extra 30 million money buy Eduardo salvio for his price. he is next hazard. so our midfield is strong.

    and to give a cover to our defense we need to buy a powerful defensive midfielder.
    in my view sell lamela to juventus for 25 million and ask them to give Fernando llornte for 8.5 million

    and with the money from lamela sale and adeabyor for 5 million , spend this 30 million money buy arsenal target, William carvalho for 30 million. sell lamela.
