Tottenham Hotspur and their transfer policy has seen them sign some exciting stars recently but their wage policy might have to be altered, if they are to keep star players at the club, still searching for success. A number of first-team stars are constantly linked with an exit and one player, who has now thrown his future into doubt, is Belgian international Toby Alderweireld.
Having missed most of the current season with an injury, he is finally back in training and could be available for the FA Cup tie at the weekend. His current deal ends at the end of the next season and may be heading towards the exit door.
An exclusive from the Telegraph revealed that Alderweireld declared himself fit for the North London Derby and the UCL game against Juventus, but was excluded for both games. His meagre release clause might tempt Spurs into selling him this summer but how can they replace him? Here are three options Spurs should start scouting for, to replace their Belgian beast:
Jose Gimenez (Atletico Madrid):
The Uruguayan international is regarded as one of the most consistent CBs in Europe at the moment but has not been able to cement a place in the first team under Diego Simeone this season. He is still 23 and will want to play regularly, which might help Spurs lure him out of Spain before the start of the next season. He will be a tad expensive but has enough potential to walk into the first team at Spurs and is a player they should start scouting for.
Stefan de Vrij (Lazio):
The Dutch international was a transfer target for many clubs at the start of the season but Italian giants Lazio managed to keep him for another season. However, he is out of a contract at the end of the season and will have a very low release clause, even if he decides to extend his stay at the club. The likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Barcelona are all interested in his services and Spur should not lag behind in the race for the 26-year old.
Ahmed Hegazi (West Bromwich Albion):
Though not as star-studded a player as the others on this list, the Egyptian international has cemented his place in the first team at Hawthorns but is unable to pick them out from the bottom of the points table. The Baggies are one of the favourites to be relegated and if they do go down, it will not be a problem to lure Hegazi back into the top flight. He has all the attributes to excel under Mauricio Pochettino and is a decent option for Spurs.
