Inter Milan defender Stefan De Vrij is keen on reuniting with his former boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
Reports from FootballInsider, the duo has been talking about a potential move with Spurs ready to help Conte get his required players in the short January window.
Conte is a fan of a back three and hence will need an additional defender to deploy that system with the Dutchman set to be the additional player he needs at the back. As per the same source, the Dutchman, now 29 years old, is valued at around 40 million pounds, although his contract running out in 2023 may have some impact on that.

Tottenham has had something of an Italian renaissance in their top-level management so far this year. Fabio Paratici joined the club as director of football in the summer and he is credited for bringing in Serie A pair of Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero, both formerly of Atalanta.
He now brought in Antonio Conte was appointed following Nuno Espirito Santo’s sacking after a 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United.
