PSV Eindhoven have reportedly been in touch with Toby Alderweireld’s agent to explore whether the Tottenham stalwart would be open to making the move back to Holland.

After struggling for game time in the second half of last season, Alderweireld has been a regular alongside Eric Dier this time around.

The 31-year-old is also under contract until the summer of 2023, so talk of a move has come somewhat out of the blue.

A report in De Telegraaf (as cited by Inside Futbol) claims that Eindhoven got in touch with Alderweireld’s agent last week.

PSV were keen to learn whether Alderweireld would be open to a move when the current campaign ends. The Belgian previously shone in a spell with Dutch rivals Ajax.

 

At this stage it is unclear what terms Tottenham might be looking for to let Alderweireld leave. However, it does seem unlikely given his return to form this term.

The centre-back is due to turn 32 years old in March this year and has made over 200 appearances for Spurs.

Real Madrid target Son move

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has been identified by Real Madrid as a potential transfer target, according to reports in Spain.

Son is enjoying one of his most successful seasons to date. He has already scored 12 goals in the Premier League this season – putting him just two away from matching his best ever tally in the competition.

The South Korean has also provided five assists in the league. His partnership with Harry Kane up front is proving crucial to Tottenham’s ambition this year.

However, as good as that has been for Tottenham, it may also be a cause of concern for them. Numerous clubs around Europe will be keeping an eye on their star players.

According to Defensa Central, Real Madrid are now showing an interest in Son. In fact, boss Zinedine Zidane is “in love” with the idea of signing him.

As a result, the club hierarchy are seriously thinking about launching a bid for Son. However, they would wait until the end of the season to do so. Read more…
