Matthijs de Ligt is one of the most promising defenders in football, however, a move to the Premier League could be made difficult, thanks to his agent Mino Raiola, according to the Mirror.
The 19-year-old defender is rated at £50million, and the report adds that Tottenham have kept an eye on De Ligt over the past 12 months. The report adds that Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are also watching the Dutch defender.
The Ajax star has played 20 league games this season with two goals to his name, and the report adds that he is expected to leave the club just like Frenkie de Jong.
The report also claims that Barcelona are interested in De Ligt and they have already signed De Jong from Ajax for next season.
Raiola has a history of creating problems for Premier League clubs, as he fell out with Pep Guardiola regarding Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s transfer a few years ago, as per the report.
Manchester United have had their issues with the agent regarding Paul Pogba’s rumoured exit after a falling out with Jose Mourinho.
The report adds that Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have spoken with Ajax regarding the Dutch defender. Tottenham could do with another quality centre-back, given the age of Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.
The 19-year-old could become one of the best in the world, and it will be interesting to see if we can use our Ajax links to sign the defender.
Spurs have signed Christian Eriksen, Davinson Sanchez and Vertonghen in recent seasons from the Dutch giants.
