In a recent report from Football.London, it was mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Stefan de Vrij from Inter Milan. It is understood that several clubs remain interested in acquiring him in January as his contract expires at the end of this season but Spurs and Atletico Madrid are the frontrunners. The Lilywhites will have to table an irrefutable offer in order to get the deal done before Atletico intervene in their plans.

De Vrij’s Decent Form At San Siro This Season

Stefan de Vrij is having a solid campaign at Inter as he has managed to put in a series of dominant displays for them on the defensive third of the pitch. The 30-year-old has made 16 appearances for the Italian club this season finding the back of the net on one occasion across various competitions.

The Dutch sensation has been a rock at the back and deserves a lot of credit for averaging 1.0 tackles, 2.0 interceptions and 3.0 clearances per game in Serie A. He has even been excellent when distributing possession from the back, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 88.0% in the Italian top-flight (stats via whoscored).

Should Tottenham Hotspur Head Coach Antonio Conte Bring Him To North London In January?

De Vrij is an experienced defender who usually remains calm under pressure and can make some timely interceptions to win the ball back for his team. He is often quick to spot the danger and can get stuck in with some solid tackles to make life difficult for the opposition. The Dutch defender doesn’t mind putting his foot through the ball when needed and is also proficient at playing his way out from the back. Standing at 1.90m, he has got the strength to dominate the opposition in the air and can even chip in by scoring the odd goal from time to time.

Thus, de Vrij will be a good fit for Tottenham‘s style of play with a three-man backline. We can expect the Inter Milan star to bring more bite and steel to Conte’s defensive department and help the Lilywhites remain competitive in both domestic and European football.

However, it remains to be seen whether de Vrij can maintain his good form in the Premier League if the North London club can find a way to convince him in the January transfer window. All in all, Conte should try everything in his power to bring him aboard when the transfer window opens in three weeks.
