The Belgium international has been the subject of speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League, with London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham both reportedly interested.
Vertonghen has previously stated his preference to join Tottenham and the defender says that move now looks close to completion.
"I am a big fan of the Premier League," he said ahead of Belgium's friendly with England. "It is almost the only competition I watch on TV and for me it is the best competition in the world.
"I would like to play in the Premier League. I am not in contact every day but I think it could be very close now, maybe a couple of weeks or maybe days."
Asked if he knew what club he wanted to join, he said: "I probably know which team I will be going to, yes. I know where I want to go and I think it is clear to everybody."
When probed as to whether that club is Tottenham, he nodded and said: "Yes."
