Reports in the British press claim that strengthening at centre-back is one of Spurs’ main priorities this summer, with the club having already having made inquiries for Jannik Vestergaard and Jerome Boateng.

When asked about rumours linking him to other clubs, he told Sport Aktuality: “There have been rumours, there are and there will be.
“However, I have never listened to or commented them.
“Of course, it will be no different after this season.
