Tottenham Hotspur have had arguably one of the best central defensive partnerships in world football over the past few seasons in Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

Both played at Ajax, both play for Belgium, one right footer and one left, the pair have known each other for years and it shows on the pitch.

However, Tottenham may have to plan ahead for next season, as Alderweireld now has just one year left on his current deal, as does Vertonghen.

The Sun reported recently that Spurs have identified Nathan Ake as a possible successor to Toby.

Ake started all 38 Premier League games for current club Bournemouth last season, and is said to be available for around £40m.

It is unclear whether Spurs would be looking to sign the defender this summer, or after next season when their current stars could leave.

Tottenham have the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Juan Foyth, Eric Dier, and Cameron Carter-Vickers in reserve.

Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to the Ake rumours:
