Arsenal join race to sign 6 ft 2 in Premier League centre-back
Arsenal join the race to sign Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. London club need a new top-class centre-back to improve the back-line, and Belgium international is the perfect option in this situation.
He has a fantastic season and proves his worth one more time. Spanish coach set to spend big money on the footballer during the summer transfer window. Man United, Liverpool, Juventus, Chelsea and Milan are also keen to sign him, and there will be a contest for the player.
Alderweireld is a regular member of the national team and also won the bronze medals with them in the 2018 World Cup which is already a big success for the footballer. He helped the Spurs to win the Champions League first quarter-final game with Man City 1-0, and they have big chance to reach the semi-final.
Toby has contracted with the English club until 2019, and his release clause is around €40m. His price could increase and become much more during this campaign. Belgian defender joined Tottenham from Atletico Madrid in 2015 with a €16m deal.
He became an unchanged figure for the club and played many matches amazingly since joining. In this season, the 30-year-old centre-back already made 41 appearances in all competition which is an excellent result for the footballer. He can do much more during this season.
Gunners will do everything to add him as Laurent Koscielny already 33-year-old, Rob Holding has a severe injury, and they need back-up. Arsenal also linked with Borussia Monchengladbach defender Matthias Ginter.
