Mirror say Chelsea are among clubs keen on Alderweireld

Mirror say Chelsea are among clubs keen on Alderweireld

Alderweireld, 28, is yet to sign fresh terms with Spurs and has 18 months left on his contract with the club now in negotiations with the player.

Premier League rivals Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are said to have been keeping tabs on the centre-half - and now Real Madrid have entered the race.

AC Milan are planning a £30m summer move for Manchester United's 28-year-old Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera.

However, the 28-year-old has not been included in either of the matchday squads for the North London derby against Arsenal or the Champions League last 16 first-leg tie with Juventus in midweek - and that has prompted plenty of discussion amongst the fans on social media with the Mirror reporting that his contract situation with Spurs is attracting interest from other clubs. The 18-year-old Dutch striker said Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea or Manchester United were clubs he could "see myself playing at in a few years". The Belgian appears destined to leave Manchester United when his contract expires at the end of the season, despite Jose Mourinho's best efforts to keep him.

Along with his contract situation, Real have been alerted to the fact Tottenham left Alderweireld behind in London as they drew 2-2 with Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich will exercise their option to purchase on-loan Real Madrid midfielder James Rodriguez, reports Bild via AS.

Newcastle are keen to sign goalkeeper Martin Dubravka permanently.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has already begun looking for houses in Spain ahead of a summer move to Real Madrid, according to Don Balon.

The midfielder's contract expires at the end of the season, with Arsenal now offering him a new deal on reduced wages. The Brazilian has been linked with a move to Liverpool. The 29-year-old Nigerian is out of contract after a stint in the Chinese Super League.

Alderweireld has a reported £25million release clause activated next summer, as long as the deal is completed two weeks before of the end of the window.
