Jan Vertonghen latest: Tottenham defender's agent admits Belgian could leave White Hart Lane
Barcelona one of 'several clubs' interested in the centre-back
Jan Vertonghen's agent has admitted the defender could leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
Barcelona are believed to be leading the chase for the 24-year-old, but Vertonghen's agent Mustapha Nakhli says a number of teams are monitoring the defender.
"Several teams are interested in Jan," he told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad. "I cannot confirm or deny whether Barcelona are one of them.
"Tottenham is not a small club. It’s too soon to give them an answer. We'll have to see"
Vertonghen played in all five of Belgium's World Cup matches at left back, but is better in the centre.
He still has two years to run on his deal at White Hart Lane, where he has grown to become one of the best defenders in the Premier League.
Signed in 2012 from Ajax, Vertonghen had a brilliant debut season and was voted into the Team of the Year.
However, speaking back in February, Vertonghen hinted he may leave Spurs if they failed to qualify for the Champions League.
He said: "Do I have a decision to make if we don't [get into the Champions League]? I can't say anything about that. Let's see after the end of the season, after the World Cup."
