Napoli are looking forward to sign Tottenham defender Jan Vertongen as the Serie side see him as an experienced leader who can potentially replace Kalidou Koulibaly, who is available for sale but more likely to leave in the summer.

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said he wants him to stay at the club along with Christian Eriksen, who is also out of contract in the summer and is a target for Inter Milan and Juventus.

Vertonghen is one of Spurs’ longest-serving players having signed from Ajax in 2012 for £12m. He has made more than 300 appearances for the club and played under Andre Villas-Boas, Tim Sherwood, Mauricio Pochettino and now Mourinho.
