Tottenham Hotspur reportedly hold interest in Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek – and fans have been reacting to the links on social media.
According to football.london, the north London club are very keen on the Dutch international, but are currently operating on a sell to buy basis with foreign players.
The recent signing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg means the club have now reached their quota for European games.
A straightforward move for van de Beek, then, seems out of the question for Spurs.
But the interest is there, and there is plenty of time left until the transfer window closes for Daniel Levy to facilitate the appropriate exits to bring a deal to fruition.
That said, there is apparently also interest from Manchester United and Barcelona, so time actually could be of the essence.
van de Beek is reported (Sky Sports) to be keen on a move to the Premier League, and a move to Tottenham would see him follow in the footsteps of Christian Eriksen.
van de Beek is one of the best players in the Eredivisie, and is the man that makes things happen from central midfield for Ajax.
In 175 appearances for the club so far he has scored 41 goals and made 34 assists.
He has certainly made a big impression in his career by the age of 23, and Spurs fans have generally reacted positively to the transfer links on social media:
This is a simple one for me. Bin off Tanguy to anyone that’ll pay us what we paid for him and buy Donny.

Maybe we could swap serge and lame Ella for him

That would be a serious acquisition.
Swap ndombele for van de beek any day of the week.
