Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek says he is interested in moving to England - which has alerted Tottenham Hotspur, according to talkSPORT. The Dutch football expert was even specific with the possible destinations, iterating that Manchester United or Tottenham could sign him in the summer transfer window.
With 16 senior worldwide caps to his name, the Ajax captain who led the Eredivisie giants to a league title and the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League has naturally created a off-season bidding war from Europe's elite. What was even more captivating about their run was the fact that Erik ten Hag's unheralded side beat Real Madrid and Juventus en route to the Last Four.
"Any player who saw the way Liverpool won the Champions League this season and the incredible scenes on the streets of the city as the team returned home would want a piece of that, and De Ligt is the kind of player that Klopp should be targeting".
The 22-year-old was on a roll in the season gone by, making 54 appearances in all competitions.
With a burgeoning reputation, van de Beek has been attracting interest from clubs across Europe with Tottenham possibly eyeing a move for the attacking midfielder.
Mauricio Pochettino is also expected to be in the market for a midfielder as Christian Eriksen has signalled his intent to seek a new challenge this summer and van de Beek would be an excellent replacement for the Danish worldwide.
"Donny van de Beek has his eyes set on the Premier League".
But De Ligt has played in the Champions League and has also impressed for his country with many tipping him to be among the finest players in his position for the next decade.
