Tottenham Hotspur keen on De Ligt, fans react

Tottenham Hotspur are one of a handful of clubs interested in signing Ajax teenager Matthijs de Ligt, according to football.london.

The 18-year-old is believed to have attracted attention due to his performances at centre-back for the Dutch outfit this season.

Despite his young age, De Ligt has started 28 games in the Eredivisie and has even contributed three goals and one assist.

The defender has also featured twice in the Champions League and Europa League this season, gaining valuable experience.

Football.london reports that any successful suitor may have to part with around £50m for the defender’s signature.

Tottenham’s arch rivals Arsenal, as well as Barcelona, are also believed to be keeping tabs on the youngster.

The rumoured interest in De Ligt raises questions over Toby Alderweireld’s future, which has been a major talking point this season.

The Belgian is yet to sign a new contract at Tottenham, with the Daily Mail claiming that wages are the major sticking point.

The supporters have now taken to Reddit to give their thoughts on the speculation surrounding De Ligt.
