Tottenham have been linked with a £50 million move for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt more than once in recent weeks.
De Ligt has emerged as one the most promising young players in Europe since making his Eredivisie debut at age of just 16 – he is also a full Netherlands international.
The teenager has attracted the interest of Barcelona and Arsenal in the past, but Spurs are believed to be among the frontrunners for his signature this summer.
However, the scouts might not have been too impressed with what they saw at the weekend.
De Ligt scored a calamitous own goal against Excelsior in the Eredevisie. You can watch it below.
What an absolute howler! 🙈

Thankfully, Ajax fought back to win 2-1. But De Ligt won’t have too many fond memories of the game.
