More and more reports of interest in Lenglet. Have we gone cold on Alderweireld because of Levy's usual excessive demands? I know Ed2 said we had watched Lenglet but made no approach. Maybe that's changed now. I can see us making a move for Lenglet, if Spurs are demanding 60+, not sure we can spend that with so many other areas to address.

That's the first area I'd address.

Perhaps it’s a ploy to drive down the price for Alderweireld. It seems Lenglet is a target but he may be plan B. Still expect us to sign Alderweireld. Either would be a welcome addition.

I agree Park it definitely seems to be a negotiating tactic.

Apparently we offered 55 million and Levy wants 70-75 million. i'd walk away. Its far too much for a player with persistent hamstring injuries who's only got 12 months on the contract. Should be no more than 30 million. Or 25 and take your pick of Smalling, Rojo, Jones or Blind. Heck take 2.

I think we need a commanding experienced cb to come in this season, somebody who is really going to lead the defence so the attacking players can just go play. I'd like us to get alderweirald but at the prices that we've apparently been quoted it's mad money. I'd take a punt on boateng he's a quality defender.

Agree mort 70-75m is crazy money for a defender who is 29, no matter how good he is. Alderweireld is the best cb in the league and considering all the factors, 55m is a good deal for both parties. But as we know levy is very difficult to deal with. The only way I believe this can happen on our terms is if Alderweireld forces the move. It does seem there is no way back with him falling out with Poch and seemingly unwilling to accept the offer they have given him. Interesting to see what happens but I expect him to be a united player. Unlikely to see it before the World Cup though.
