The 29-year-old Spurs defender has 18 months left on his current deal to open up the likelihood of a potential departure this summer transfer window in a cut-price deal.

Toby Alderweireld has emerged as one of the English Premier League’s top quality defenders over the last two and a half campaigns at White Hart Lane.

The Gunners have struggled with their back line this term after conceding 48 goals in 36 matches in the English Premier League to leave the club in sixth position.

France international defender Laurent Koscielny and German centre-half Shkodran Mustafi have been disappointing to prompt calls for the Gunners to strengthen their centre-half options at the conclusion of the campaign.

Former Gunners defender Groves believes Arsenal should look to land the Belgium international centre-half from their rivals at the conclusion of the season.

The gunners lost 3-0 to English Premier League recently crowned champions Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley Stadium earlier this term.

Arsenal drew 1-1 with Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid in the opening leg of their UEFA Europa League last four a week ago.
