Inter have reignited their interest in Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen, whose contract will expire at the end of this month, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how the Nerazzurri are looking for a replacement for veteran defender Diego Godin, who has struggled this season after failing to adapt to coach Antonio Conte’s tactical system and preference for a back three.
The 33-year-old Vertonghen would be a low-cost solution and give Conte an experienced veteran to help the younger backline.
Vertonghen has made 29 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2250 minutes. In that time, he has scored two goals, provided one assist and helped the side keep six clean sheets.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is an expert at signing players on a free transfer, famous for this work with Juventus, and signing Vertonghen is currently one of his goals.
