Tottenham linked with £100m Matthijs De Ligt swoop

Tottenham are linked with signing Matthijs De Ligt (CalcioMercato).

The Dutch defender is one of the hottest young talents in world football.

He only signed for Juventus for just shy of £70m in 2019 (Sky Sports).

However, reports in Italy are suggesting that Tottenham could be set to make a huge move for the Dutchman.

At just 22-years-old, De Ligt is one of the youngest top level centre-backs in the game.

If he was to move to Tottenham it would be a huge coup for the Lilywhites.

Fabio Paratici’s linked with Juventus will certainly be at play here if Spurs are to make this happen.

Tottenham fans would love it too.

In central defence, Spurs are struggling for quality options.

Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez started the season well together, but recently we’ve seen them slip back to the norm.

Defensive mistakes and lapses of concentration are, sadly, just a part of their games.

In Cristian Romero, Spurs have a real top quality central defender.

However, we’re yet to see him really settle down in North London.

If he can find his feet and then find himself partnered with a new man in De Ligt, this Spurs defence could become incredible.

The Lilywhites have shipped nine goals in their last three Premier League games, so the priority to get a defender is there.

However, many fans will want to see their side bolster in midfield too.

If Paratici can secure a couple of January/summer deals on top of a massive De Ligt splurge then it would be a huge coup.
