Ajax stunned the world with a thrashing of Real Madrid last week to advance in the Champions League – but with that comes major interest in their players.
Frenkie de Jong is already heading to Barcelona this summer, but Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech are set to attract suitors come the end of the season.
Another player who is becoming a wanted man is left back Nicolas Tagliafico, who has starred for Ajax since arriving from Independiente last January.
Despite having Ben Davies and Danny Rose, Spurs need a left back; one with pace and attacking ability, as current rose isn't quite at his 2016-17 best, and Spurs have missed that dynamic option up the flanks.
Tagliafico fits the bill. He's quick, can run for days and has quality when it comes to an end product, whilst at 26 he's approaching the peak of his powers.
Mauricio Pochettino should and quite possibly will know all about his compatriot, whilst Tottenham have a strong relationship with Ajax having signed Jan Vertonghen, Christian Eriksen and Davinson Sanchez from them in years gone by.
Tagliafico should be the next name on the radar, and Tottenham must move quickly in order to make sure they land a fine left back whilst damaging Arsenal's transfer plans.
