Tottenham frantically working to trump Arsenal for Vertonghen

Tottenham are desperate to beat Arsenal for Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen.

The Sunday Mirror says Daniel Levy will fly to Amsterdam to open talks over brining the £10million-rated Ajax defender to White Hart Lane.

Vertonghen declared his high regard for Arsenal after visiting the Emirates for a Champions League game and staying with ­international teammate Thomas Vermaelen.

But the Gunners have still to finalise their deal for the 25-year-old and Spurs have been working away behind the scenes ­trying to set up their own deal.
