Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen in signing the Dutch duo.
According to a report from Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Tottenham star Christian Eriksen has suggested Ajax duo Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt to Mauricio Pochettino as ideal transfer targets.
Spurs failed to sign a single player during the summer transfer window - the first club to do so in Premier League history, but it is clearly evident that Pochettino needs to bolster his ranks over the course of the next two windows.
Tottenham are currently in the midst of a very expensive stadium move, however, so it is unclear as to how much money Pochettino actually has to spend.
Mundo Deportivo claims that two of Spurs' key transfer targets are Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, after Christian Eriksen recommended the Ajax pair to the Argentine.
De Ligt, 19, is a centre-back, whilst De Jong, 21, is a central midfielder.
The Dutch pair would command upwards of around £100 million, however, so it is highly doubtful that Tottenham could afford to splash out on the exciting young duo.
