A report claims that Tottenham Hotspur want close to £40m for Toby Alderweireld after the £25m release clause in his contract expired.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld's price tag has reportedly gone through the roof after the release clause in his contract expired.

The Belgian centre-back had been linked with numerous teams early in the summer transfer window, including Tottenham's Premier League rivals Manchester United.

Alderweireld was available for a cut-price fee of £25m, but as of today Tottenham are no longer obliged to sell him on the cheap.

According to The Sun, Spurs will now ask any potential buyers for closer to the £40m mark should they reignite their interest.

Meanwhile, the same report indicates that Man United's pursuit of Leicester City defender Harry Maguire has accelerated as a result of Alderweireld no longer being available on the cheap.
