Spurs Join Matthijs de Ligt Line


Still a tender 18-year-old, Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is quickly emerging as one of Europe’s most wanted defenders.

The likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Bayern Munich have all been linked with the Ajax starlet who has impressed this season in Eredivisie.

De Ligt made 32 appearances in Dutch top flight and added three goals to his name in the process but it was his composure and imposing physical ability that made him such a hotly desired asset for some of Europe’s best clubs.

Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur appear to have joined the race for Matthijs de Ligt and the Sun already reports that Spurs are prepared to invest close to £50 million as part of the summer overhaul which would include adding De Ligt as a direct replacement for wantaway defender Toby Alderweireld.
