Tottenham star Jan Vertonghen’s deal at the club will expire at the end of next month and the Belgium international’s availability has attracted the attention of Roma. However, they are said to be “frightened” by the player’s wage demands.
The 33-year-old has made over 300 appearances for the north London club since arriving from Ajax for £12million in 2012. However, the centre-back has fallen down the pecking order under Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.
Vertonghen has only made 19 Premier League appearances this campaign and he could be offered a new challenge in Serie A with Roma interested in the veteran defender.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, there was informal contact between the parties but the player’s wage demands frightened Roma. Vertonghen was seeking over £2.7m (€3m) a season, which is over £50,000 a week.
