Tonny Vilhena transfer: Netherlands midfielder 'wanted by Tottenham and Roma'

Tottenham are interested in signing Netherlands midfielder Tonny Vilhena, according to reports in Italy.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with Roma and Corriere dello Sport say the Serie A side are preparing a swap deal which would send Rick Karsdorp back to Feyenoord.

But CalcioMercato say Spurs are ready to offer competition for his signature after monitoring the box-to-box midfielder throughout the Eredivisie campaign.

The combative Vilhena has already won 15 caps for the Netherlands during their recent resurgence and is thought to be considered a possible replacement for Moussa Dembele.

Dembele looks set to leave Spurs with his contract due to expire at the end of the season, and Vilhena could be high on Pochettino’s list of midfield targets.
