Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen continues to be linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, with his agent saying "we'll see' what happens to the Belgium defender.

Barcelona have targeted Vertonghen, alongside Germany's Mats Hummels and others to solve their centre back problem following the retirement of Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano's move back to midfield following his impressive World Cup displays.

Impressive World Cup

Vertonghen has also impressed during the competition in Brazil, albeit at left back, and his agent Mustapha Nakhli says there is plenty of interest in his client.

The Belgian's representative told Het Nieuwsblad: “Several teams are interested in Jan. I cannot confirm or deny whether Barcelona are one of them. Tottenham is not a small club. It’s too soon to give them an answer. Several clubs have registered their interest in Jan. We’ll see.”

Tottenham and their new manager Mauricio Pochettino will be reluctant to lose a player of Vertonghen's ability, although the ex-Ajax player will rightfully demand he is played in his preferred position of centre back.

Davies interest?

Spurs' mooted move for Ben Davies would seem to solve their left back problem, allowing Vertonghen to play in the middle, but with the North London side missing out on Champions League football again it is no surprise vultures are circling.

With Hugo Lloris having signed a new long term deal, Tottenham will hope to avoid losing any players they want to retain, and Vertonghen fits that bill.
