Tottenham Hotspur have reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Chelsea target Toby Alderweireld, according to Belgian outlet Nieuwsblad.

Alderweireld spent last term on loan at Southampton and had a stunning season for last seasons biggest overachievers. It was mooted that the Belgian could be in line for a permanent stay at St Mary's, but his performances have attracted bigger fish.

Chelsea are thought to be keen on the defender and despite Spurs agreeing a fee in the region of €16m for Alderweireld, they are yet to agree personal terms. Even though, the Belgian outlet says wages should be agreed imminently, Spurs fans will remember the Willian situation and Chelsea's ability to bulldoze a deal and take control.
