Last month, we covered claims made in Italy that Antonio Conte has requested Tottenham Hotspur sign Inter Milan’s Stefan de Vrij in the summer.

On April 14th, Alfredo Pedullà further stressed the defender is liked by the north London club. He has just over a year left on his contract with the Serie A winners.

It was also explained the Tottenham Hotspur target’s priority would be to continue at the San Siro, as long as the Nerazzurri provide an explanation over why his renewal is still not sorted out, despite reaching an agreement in principle for a new deal in 2020.

Inter and AC Milan are battling to win the Scudetto this season. Simone Inzaghi’s side are second in the table with 72 points, trailing Milan by two points, with a game in hand.

At the end of the season, De Vrij’s future needs to be clarified. journalist Stefano Benzi claims the centre-back can leave the Italian champions as long as there is a convincing proposal.

According to Benzi, ‘there is a very serious interest’ for the 30-year-old from Tottenham. The journalist further states Spurs are ‘willing to spend’ an ‘important figure’ of €40m to sign the Netherlands international in the upcoming window.
