According to reports, Inter Milan wants to sell Tottenham and Arsenal's transfer target, Stefan de Vrij, to a Premier League club.
Inter do not desire a repeat of the Ivan Perisic situation in which they lose a key figure for nothing, according to an Italian outlet Calciomercato.
Perisic joined Tottenham this summer and secured a reunion with Antonio Conte on a free transfer. De Vrij might do the same.
Because Arsenal's name has also been thrown in the hat, Tottenham's name isnt the only one linked to the Holland International.
Arsenal may sign the 30-year-old in a player-plus-cash deal for Gabriel Magalhaes, according to reports.
Arsenal supporters would say a big no to that because Gabriel is a crucial member of the team that wants to return to Champions League football next season.
But with Spurs scouring the Italian market since Conte walked through the doors, it's understandable why a name as de Vrijs might be linked.
WHO WILL TOTTENHAM SEND AT THE BACK?
Conte is hoping to add much-needed depth to his backline ahead of a scheduled-packed season.
It appears that the club is looking for a centre-back to join them and provide competition and depth at the back, whether it's De Vrij or someone else.
Clement Lenglet has been touted as a possible transfer.
At Barcelona, the French defender has had a tough time, but people in north London are offering him a break.
Spurs have been cautioned against securing Lenglets' talents due to his form at the Nou Camp.
