Barcelona rightfully fearful of Tottenham regarding £40m Frenkie De Jong

Tottenham Hotspur are said to be keen on the Ajax midfielder.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly identified the man they want to replace Mousa Dembele in the long-term in North London. Spurs are said to be on the hunt for Ajax midfielder Frenkie De Jong, according to a report from the Express.

It is suggested that Tottenham want to scout the player this season, before potentially making a move next summer for a player valued at £40 million.

That has seemingly stirred Barcelona into life. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalans are also keen on the talented Dutch international. They report a January bid could be forthcoming from Barcelona, as they are wary of the threat Tottenham pose.

Rightly so.

Whilst Barcelona have a historic link with the Dutch giants, in recent times Tottenham have done plenty of business with Ajax.


Jan Vertonghen joined Spurs from the Amsterdam ArenA in 2012 and one year later Christian Eriksen followed him.

Last summer, Tottenham broke their transfer record to sign Davinson Sanchez from Ajax. While plenty of teams across Europe seem to struggle with the idea of doing business with notoriously difficult Daniel Levy, Ajax have been more than willing down the years at the right price.

Tottenham will hope this can help them get one over on the La Liga giants.
