Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the exciting Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico this summer, according to the Sun (25 March, page 51).
Ajax stunned Europe by reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League this season, famously battering Real Madrid 4-1 in their own back yard with the likes of Dusan Tadic, Hakim Ziyech and Frenkie De Jong starring in Europe’s premiere club competition.
And the impact of Tagliafico cannot be underestimated either; the Argentine international solving something of a problem position at Ajax by establishing himself as one of Europe’s most impressive left-backs.
The former Independiente ace, who arrived in Amsterdam in January 2018, has five goals and five assists to his name this season.
The Sun reports that Arsenal and Barcelona are interested with Ajax willing to cash in if a club meets their £15 million price-tag. But Tottenham are eyeing the swashbuckling full-back too despite the fact that Mauricio Pochettino can already call upon Ben Davies and Danny Rose.
Speaking to Mundo Deportivo last week, Tagliafico claimed that he is happy at Ajax but admitted he was honoured to be linked with some of Europe’s biggest and best.
