Stefan de Vrij was one of the key defenders under Antonio Conte, helping Inter Milan win the title last season.

The centre-back has less than 18 months left on his contract and the manager, who left the San Siro last May, returned to management two months ago when Tottenham Hotspur appointed him as their new boss.

On December 28th, we covered claims made by FCInterNews that Spurs have ‘asked for information’ for signing the defender.

With the north London club lurking for a potential transfer next summer, there seems to be a new development in the Netherlands international’s case, if TuttoMercatoWeb are to be believed.

It’s claimed there is a ‘stalemate’ in the renewal talks between the Serie A winners and the former Lazio man. Therefore, there’s a good chance the current campaign could be his last season in Italy.

TMW are of the belief De Vrij would ‘not mind an adventure’ in the Premier League, where Tottenham are in the picture, or Spain.

A move to Spurs will see the player reunite with Conte.

Meanwhile, Inter have identified Borussia Mönchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter as a possible replacement for De Vrij.

The German’s contract expires in June and confirmed he will not sign a new deal with Gladbach.
