Tottenham set £9m asking price

Tottenham are locked in negotiations with Ajax as they try to agree a fee to sign defender Jan Vertonghen, according to The Daily Mail.

The Belgium international is highly-rated, and after leading the Amsterdam Arena side to back-to-back titles is ready to leave the Eredivisie for a bigger club.

With one year left on his contract Spurs are thought to have offered £7 million, but the Dutch champions are holding out for £9 million for their captain.

Vertonghen and his agent Nakhli Mustapha were in attendance at White Hart Lane on Sunday to witness Spurs seal fourth place with a 2-0 win over Fulham, and a deal to bring the centre half to north London is thought be close if the teams can agree a fee.

Arsenal are also thought to be interested in Vertonghen, who looks Premier League bound this summer.
