“7 or 8 big European clubs interested in signing him”

Tottenham must offer central defender Toby Alderweireld, 28, improved terms or let him leave for another club, says the player’s adviser to Het Nieuwsblad via Daily Telegraph.

His current deal runs until 2020. However Spurs have yet to make the 28-year-old a new offer despite approaches by his father Vic and fellow advisor Stijn Francis.

Alderweireld has recently seen Ajax defender Davinson Sanchez arrive in a £35m club record deal to provide competition for his first-team place.
