Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund are also interested
Tottenham are reportedly scouting Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
The 21-year-old, who played a part in the Dutch side’s journey to the 2017 Europa League final, has also been watched by Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
Now, according to the Express, Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be eyeing up a potential January swoop for De Jong with club scouts already having attended to watch the youngster.
He has previously stated that he intends to stay in his homeland until at least the end of the 2018/19 season, though his club may be tempted to sell him sooner.
The Dutchman is rated at around £40m and Spurs could look to steal a march on their transfer rivals by making a play for his signature in January.
