Jan Vertonghen made a big decision recently as he dropped curtains on his marvelous Tottenham career. The 33-year-old spent eight years at Spurs improving the club’s defense and becoming an essential part of the team. However, after 315 appearances, the footballer decided to leave the English side, and now he is probably open to new opportunities.
Everton is still looking for a center-back as the potential deals with Gabriel Magalhaes and Jean-Clair Todibo failed. In this situation, the Toffees must start targeting Vertonghen.
It could be a great choice, as at 33, the defender still has several vital years at his best. The Belgian, who became one of their best signings of the past decade for Spurs, could be incredibly beneficial for Everton too.
Last but not least, the Tottenham veteran won’t be a huge burden on the budget as the player will probably accept an offer with a salary of about £80,000-£100,000 per week, similar to what he earned at The Lilywhites.
