Back in January, Tottenham Hotspur were linked with a move for Ajax starlet Donny Van de Beek.
Reports in France claimed Spurs and Manchester United were monitoring the midfielder, who had been impressing in the first half of the season.
Since then, Van de Beek’s name has become far more well-known as a result of Ajax’s incredible run to the Champions League semi-finals.
The 21-year-old was instrumental as Ajax beat Juventus 2-1 in the quarter-finals on Tuesday night, scoring the opening goal as the Dutch side stunned Cristiano Ronaldo and company.
When Tottenham were being linked with Van de Beek in January, there were suggestions Ajax would listen to offers of around £18 million.
That price will have skyrocketed over the last few months, but Spurs simply must at least make an enquiry about the Netherlands international.
Van de Beek has scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists in 50 appearances across all competitions this term, proving his ability as a dangerous attacking midfielder.
Tottenham’s problem will be the inevitable competition from some of Europe’s biggest clubs – that’s why the Londoners must act fast.
