Tottenham set to make £40 million move for Ajax youngster

Tottenham may have failed to sign any player in the last transfer window, but the Lilywhites can’t wait to complete the signing of one of Europe’s most exciting prospects.

Reports on Sun Sport claims that Mauricio Pochettino has sanctioned the signing of Frankie de Jong from Ajax in a £40 million move when the transfer window reopens.

De Jong has become one of AJax biggest stars and the latest product from their famed academy to gain the attention of Europe’s elites, and Tottenham want to steal a march on his other suitors.

The 21 years old claims to be a fan of Barcelona, and the Catalans are among his suitors, but Pochettino is hoping that his reputation for helping youngsters develop well across Europe would sway the player’s decision in their favor.

PSG are also interested in signing the Netherlands international. The French champions are desperate to tie Andrien Rabiot down to a new contract, but it seems that the French man has all but decided to play for another team next season, and they want de Jong to replace him.
