Tottenham are planning for life without Jan Vertonghen next season after failing to come to an agreement with the defender over a new contract, according to a report by Football Insider.
The long-serving centre half, who has been one of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League since moving from Ajax in the summer of 2012, sees his current contract with Spurs in the summer.
It is reported that Spurs offered the 32-year-old a one-year extension on reduced terms but the defender is said to have rejected it as he is seeking a minimum of a two-year contract.
The report goes on to claim that there is interest in the Belgian international from the continent.
It is claimed that Jose Mourinho and the club hierarchy are making early squad plans for next season and are currently not expecting Vertonghen to remain in North London.

I don’t believe Vertonghen has done enough this season to convince Jose Mourinho and the club that he deserves a two-year extension. I actually thought he was showing signs of slowly recovering his form in the final couple of games before the coronavirus shutdown but unfortunately for him, it looks like he might have played his last game for Spurs.
