London club keen on signing Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and set to battle with Arsenal, Man United, Milan, Liverpool and Juventus for the player.

There will be a battle for the footballer, and his price could become much more. Toby joined the Spurs from Atletico Madrid in 2015 with a €16m deal. He is one of the best defenders in the Premier League and unchanged figure for the club.

In this campaign, Alderweireld already played 41 matches in all tournament which is a good result for the centre-back. He can improve his consequences during this season. The 30-year-old defender has contracted with the English club until 2019, and his release clause is nearly €40m.

He regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to finish the 2018 Mundial in a third place which is already a significant achievement for the footballer.
