Inter Milan are planning a summer move for Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen, according to the Guardian.

Spurs have ruled out a January move for the 32-year-old Belgian, who is out of contract in the summer, but the Serie A giants are reportedly set to return and offer Vertonghen a three-year-deal at the end of the season.

Vertonghen has endured a mix campaign for Tottenham this term, starting nine games in all competitions, but was dropped from the side for their 2-1 Premier League defeat against Liverpool on Sunday, which came five days after he was below-par in Spurs’ Champions League victory over Red Star Belgrade.

But the Guardian, are reporting that Tottenham are still hoping to agree a new deal for Vertonghen, who joined in 2012, especially with his Belgian colleague Toby Alderweireld out of contract in the summer and looking increasingly likely to leave the club on a free transfer.

Inter have made an excellent start to the season and are currently sitting in 2nd, just one point behind leaders Juventus, giving them hope of ending their 10-year wait for a title.
