Tottenham fans want Noussair Mazraoui signed after Ajax thriller

Reports suggest that Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring Eredivisie winner Mazraoui to the Premier League to solve Spurs' right-back problems.

Looking through the star-studded Ajax team who stormed to the Champions League semi-final last season, it feels like almost every single member of Erik Ten Hag’s squad has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur at some time or another.

Donny Van de Beek, Hakim Ziyech, Nicolas Tagliafico and David Neres were all mentioned as potential additions to Mauricio Pochettino’s side over the last 12 months. So too were Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong, before they sealed big-money moves to Juventus and Barcelona of course.

And with the January transfer window looming large, Ajax fans must be sick of speculation linking their star men with the side who broke their hearts with a Lucas Moura hat-trick in the spring. The carousel is turning again.

The Sun claims that goalkeeper Andre Onana is a £35 million replacement for Hugo Lloris while right-back Noussair Mazraoui, as reported by AS Roma Live, is on the radar of both Tottenham and Leicester City.

Now, Ajax’s defence might have been breached four times by Chelsea during Tuesday’s madcap eight-goal Champions League thriller at Stamford Bridge but both Onana and Mazraoui came out of the game with their reputations enhanced.

Quick, aggressive and tidy in possession, could Morocco international Mazraoui solve Spurs’ problems at right-back? The fans certainly think so.
