Tottenham fans react to Matthijs De Ligt interest
Tottenham fans have reacted to their De Ligt interest.
The fantastic Dutchman is being linked with a £100m move to Tottenham, having previously worked with Fabio Paratici (Calciomercato).
The Lilywhites have had a shocker defensively in recent weeks.
Having shipped nine goals in their last three games, Nuno Espirito Santo’s are lacking a leader at the back at the moment.
Signing De Ligt would put all of those issues to bed, though.
He’s one of the finest young players, let alone defenders, in the world.
At just 22-years-old, De Ligt has already made his name as a world class centre-back.
He signed for Juventus in 2019 for a fee just shy of £70m (Sky Sports).
If this deal does come off then it would be a massive coup for Spurs.
Not only would they be signing one of the best defenders in the game, but they’ll be signing a first choice option for 10+ years.
Tottenham fans have reacted to their De Ligt interest
The fans are clearly desperate to sign a player of De Ligt’s quality, but some are sceptical.
These rumours are surfacing at a time when the fan base is divided and in turmoil.
Many fans just want to see some change for the good at the club.
Their form has been dreadful in recent weeks and maybe the signing of a marquee player in January could change that.
Hopefully by the time this deal does happen, if at all, Cristian Romero will have settled in at the club.
A partnership of the 23-year-old Romero and 22-year-old De Ligt would be one of the finest in the world.
However, it’s about making it happen, something the fans desperately want.
