Tottenham fans debate potential De Ligt arrival

Tottenham Hotspur are expected to lose Toby Alderweireld this summer, with the centre-back no closer to signing a new contract.

Alderweireld will not be short of suitors, and it will leave Tottenham needing to sign a new central defender to complement Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez next season.

Ajax teenager Matthijs de Ligt has been strongly linked with a move to White Hart Lane, with some reports claiming that Spurs are preparing a £45m move.

There is absolutely no question that De Ligt is an outstanding talent, and he is believed to have impressed Manchester United when he played against the Red Devils in last season’s Europa League final.

It would be a risk for Tottenham to spend close to £50m on an 18-year-old, but the Netherlands international has already made 60 appearances for Ajax’s first team.

The Tottenham fans have been discussing De Ligt’s potential arrival this summer, and there are some differing opinions.
