Tottenham target Jan Vertonghen has hailed the north London club as 'amazing', and admits he is keen on a summer move to the Premier League.

The Ajax defender has been frequently linked with a move away from Amsterdam in recent months, and Spurs appear to be the frontrunners to secure his signature.

Vertonghen has also reportedly been attracting the attention of Arsenal, while Manchester United and Chelsea have also been credited with interest in the Belgian.

However, Tottenham's prospects of signing the 24-year-old appear to have been handed a significant boost, after Vertonghen revealed his admiration for Spurs and his ambition to play in England.

“I think Tottenham are an amazing club and you see how well they are doing this season,” Vertonghen told Goal.com.

“They are in the top three in England and that’s where I want to play.

“I can’t say anything about whether there has been contact about a transfer but I think my game can be suited to English football.

“I love the atmosphere and it has the best players in the world, it breathes football. It’s one of my goals to play in the best leagues and against the best players.

“It’s the only competition I watch apart from Barcelona.”

Ajax manager Frank de Boer had previously claimed that Vertonghen possesses the ability to play for a side with the stature of Manchester United, while he also impressed against the Premier League champions during the Europa League.

And it would appear a move to England could be in the offing for the versatile defender when the transfer window opens once more at the end of the season.
