Rumours persist regarding the potential sale of Vlad Chiriches to Roma but even though it looks likely that Jan Vertonghen will stay at the club, can we really afford to let the Romanian international leave?
Having stayed away from Tottenham’s pre-season tour of North America with a back problem, the Daily Mirror report that the club may be prepared to let the centre half go providing Roma pay the £7m that we handed over to Steaua Bucharest 12 months ago.
The transfer of Michael Dawson is reportedly still on, once Tottenham can agree on a severance package which leaves us with the infirm Younes Kaboul. Elsewhere there are stories claiming that Spurs are preparing a bid for Aston Villa’s Ron Vlaar.
Chiriches plays in the same left central position as Vertonghen and assuming the Belgian stays he would have to be first choice. However, do we really have the embarrassment of riches that would allow Vlad to leave White Hart Lane?
