5-Year Deal Agreed: Tottenham in early discussion to sign player

Sources: Tottenham overcome a significant obstacle in their pursuit of Van de Ven.

According to sources who spoke to Football Insider, Tottenham and Wolfsburg defender Micky van de Ven have reached a personal agreement as they move closer to a deal they believe can be completed soon.

The Bundesliga club and the Londoners have been in talks over the past week, but no fee has been agreed upon.

The 22-year-old Holland Under-21 international is available for £25 million from Tottenham, but Wolfsburg is holding out for closer to £30 million.

Van de Ven has reached an agreement with Spurs on a five-year contract that would keep him with the Premier League team through 2028, which is a significant hurdle that has been overcome.

The Bundesliga team and the north London club have engaged in direct negotiations to determine a price for Van de Ven, but the terms of the agreement have not been settled.

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, has had the left-sided center-back on his radar for some time, but the club has other targets on its list in case the transfer cannot be completed.

They include Edmond Tapsoba of Bayer Leverkusen, but Van de Ven is seeking nearly twice as much for him.Van de Ven was a member of the recent Netherlands U21 team competing at the current European Championships, where the team finished last after drawing all three of its group stage games.

He played the whole 90 minutes in each match during the group stage against Belgium, Portugal, and Georgia while only allowing two goals to be conceded.

Postecoglu has already taken quick action to dismantle the team that performed below expectations last year.

After announcing Dejan Kulusevski’s permanent signing, goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario left Empoli for £15 million, winger James Maddison left Leicester for £40 million, and winger Manor Salomon arrived on a free transfer.
