Italian giants Roma could reportedly turn attention to Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Serie A club are keen to sign a new defender this summer and their priority is Real Betis’ Marc Bartra.

The report details that they are now considering Alderweireld as an alternative and are admirers of him.

Alderweireld, who earns £80,000-a-week (Spotrac), has built up his reputation as one of the most consistent centre-backs in Europe during recent years.

The 30-year-old has been an ever-present in the Spurs backline and a rock for manager Mauricio Pochettino.
