Spurs to make a bid for Stefan De Vrij in January as they are looking to replace Sanchez. Conte is struggling with fixture congestion, and Spurs have not been playing fluent football. The Italian manager wants to change things in the back for a more progressive style of play, and De Vrij can help in building up from the back. Conte knows De Vrij’s qualities, and a reunion might happen if Inter do not give the Dutch defender another contract.
Stefan De Vrij’s contract will end in June next year, and Inter are not looking to give him another deal. The Dutch defender has declined but is still a quality defender. Inter want to invest in young talents and will be looking to offload De Vrij. Spurs are ready to make a move for him in January, and the deal will benefit both parties. Inter Milan will not have to let him go as a free agent in the summer, and Spurs will have a quality defender that will improve their backline.
Spurs to make a bid for De Vrij and give Sanchez in a swap deal
Fabio Patrici is willing to give Davinson Sanchez in the deal to acquire De Vrij. However, Inter would prefer an only-cash deal as they have to generate profit next year. Also, Sanchez will be of no substantial use to Inter as he is in poor form. Moreover, Inter are struggling defensively, so signing him might add to the problems at the back.
Spurs are looking to increase the depth of their squad as they are competing in every competition for now. Inter will let go of De Vrij if they find another defender, that can replace him. The Nerazzurri signed Acerbi to help in the rotation, and he has been starting ahead of De Vrij in crucial games. Inzaghi no longer sees De Vrij as a key player in Inter Milan’s lineup.
