Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen would suit Tottenham Hotspur, according to teammate Toby Alderweireld.

The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to north London, with both Spurs and Arsenal reportedly interested.

And after a pair of sterling displays against Manchester United in the Europa League, Vertonghen has been tipped to be a big success at White Hart Lane.

"Tottenham Hotspur would be a good club for him," Alderweireld told Voetbal International. "They compete at the top and in a beautiful league and also he would have a good chance to be a starting player."

"For Jan, this is a much more important consideration than just a big bag of money."

Despite a return to fitness and form of Ledley King, Tottenham are likely to delve into the transfer market to bolster their resources ahead of the new season.

A move for Vertonghen's international teammate, Eden Hazard, has been mentioned as Spurs look to sustain their challenge for the Premier League title.

Harry Redknapp's side look likely to fall short this season, however, will add to their squad this summer despite talk of the 64-year-old becoming the new England manager.
