TOTTENHAM are reportedly fearful of losing Toby Alderweireld for nothing after failing to cash in on the Belgian centre-back.
The ex-Ateltico Madrid man – who has been chased by Roma this summer – will be a fee agent next summer.
He was available for £25million this summer because of a release clause in his contract, but that expired last month.
The Mirro claim that Spurs believe they could now end up with him walking away for free.
European clubs are free to talk to him in January.
FORMER Spurs striker Fernado Llorente could be about to sign for Napoli.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Spanish forward has been offered a contract by the Serie A side.
The ex-Swansea man is a free agent following his release by Spurs this summer.
Napoli are also believed to be closing in on the signing of winger Hirving Lozano from PSV.
GARY NEVILLE believes Spurs have got the best football operator in Daniel Levy.
The Tottenham owner has often been criticised by fans for not splashing the cash and being too shrewd in the transfer window.
But Neville insists he runs his club perfectly.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I believe they (Sprus) have got the best operator in football in Levy.
“You might not agree. [He’s the best] in the Premier League. Absolutely the best for me.
“He gets some things wrong, of course he does. But he doesn’t get messed around, he stands his ground, stands up to managers.”
MAURICIO POCHETTINO has opened up on his relationship with Jan Vertonghen, admitting the pair often clash during training.
The Belgian centre-back was omitted from the Spurs squad that beat Aston Villa on Saturday.
Speaking of the player, Poch said: “It is true that we clash a lot in training because [Jan] is clever and always has an argument and a reason why.
“But in the end, I appreciate a lot his efforts in giving the team what we expect from him.
“It is good to praise him because he is a very good player who sometimes does not get valued enough. I am so proud that he has achieved this level today.
“Not only on the pitch but off the pitch. In my opinion, he’s one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League and in Europe.”
