Tottenham are reportedly interested in Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are extremely excited about the possibility of signing him.
According to FC Inter News, Spurs have the 22-year-old on their radar in case they lose Christian Eriksen in the summer.
The report details that they could be frontrunners for his signature and be prepared to pay £45million, which would be a club-record fee.
Van de Beek is a key player for an Ajax team that are facing Spurs in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
The Holland internatonal has made 52 appearances across all competitions this season for Ajax, scoring 15 goals and supplying 11 assists in return.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are set to get a close look at him on Tuesday night when they host the Dutch giants in the first leg of a European showdown.
Van de Beek is an attacking midfielder that usually plays in the number 10 role and is a star name in the Eredivisie after rising through Ajax’s academy.
He will be one of the key threats that Spurs have to try nullify in midweek, but a selection of of the club’s supporters on social media are open to the idea of him joining them next season.
Here are some Spurs fans discussing Van de Beek:
