According to a report from Todofichajes, Spurs have opened talks to sign Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic in the summer – with the club and his agent apparently on speaking terms.
Savic, who has started 14 La Liga games for Atletico over 2019/2020, is said to be looking for a way out of the Wanda Metropolitano following no guarantee of real playing time next season.
The 29-year-old, currently valued at around £22.95 million by Transfermarkt, has played at the highest level over this last decade – but his WhoScored stats when compared to defender Jan Vertonghen could highlight why Spurs supporters don’t see him as the ideal successor.
Would Savic be a good Vertonghen replacement?
Yes, get him in
No, far better options
As a result, many Spurs fans have flocked to rubbish a potential move – find all of their best comments from Twitter down below.
