Liverpool are looking to lure Jan Vertonghen from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer if they secure Champions League football next season, Metro reports.

Last week the Belgian defender admitted that he would look to play elsewhere if his side fails to finish in the top four to qualify for Europe’s biggest competition.

With this in mind, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to pounce and strengthen his inconsistent back-line.

The Reds have been in spectacular form this season and is on track to re-enter the Champions League for the first time since 2010 after their impressive 3-0 win over Southampton at St. Mary’s.

They are also in the hunt for their first ever Premier League trophy as they now sit second, only three points behind league leaders Chelsea.

On the other hand, Tottenham came off a 1-0 home win over Cardiff but is struggling to keep up with the top four – five points behind fourth placed Manchester City but the Citizens have two games in hand.

But the Lilywhites will do everything to keep the highly rated defender, who has been a fan favorite after his transfer from Ajax back in the summer of 2012.
