Tottenham have been known to look to Ajax for some of their best most recent signings, with the likes of Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez and Christian Eriksen having made the journey directly from Amsterdam whilst Toby Alderweireld has also previously played for the Dutch side. The next man to follow that path could be Kasper Dolberg.
Calciomercato quote former Everton winger Andy Van der Meyde as revealing that Tottenham are tracking the forward, who has broken into the first team over the past two seasons and made an instant impression with his clinical finishing and rapid movement up-front.
His return of 23 goals and eight assists in 48 games in 2016/17 immediately caught the eye, leading his team with their exciting play taking them to the Europa League final with Dolberg leading the way as he tore defences from across the continent apart with his movement and pace.
There may be a need for caution though, as the youngster has struggled to sustain his fine form this campaign, scoring only nine times in 30 appearances and even losing a starting spot during some periods of the season.
Despite that, there is no denying that he has the quality and the potential. Previous signings from Eredivisie, namely Vincent Janssen, show that the Lilywhites should not get carried away and expect too much too soon if they were to move for the Danish international, but he has all the attributes to succeed at White Hart Lane.
His dynamism in attack, looking to break through the lines, is reminiscent in some regards of Heung-Min Son, whilst playing in a more advanced central role but his role in the Tottenham team would be clear.
