Former Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is a possible transfer target for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

That’s according to Italian publication Il Messaggero, who suggest the experienced Belgian defender is of interest to Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

33-year-old Vertonghen left Spurs this week after 8 years with the club, amassing 232 Premier League appearances in that time.

Spurs were locked in a race for the Europa League spots with Wolves this season, with Wanderers eventually securing seventh place.

A second consecutive Europa League campaign will no doubt take it’s toll on Wolves’ squad, and the addition of an experienced Vertonghen may not be the worst idea from Nuno Espirito Santo.
