Tottenham are reportedly leading the race to sign Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt in the summer transfer window.

Spurs have been tracking the progress of the 18-year-old for a while, and have made him one of their top priority signings this summer.

Serie A champions Juventus joined the race and threatened to hijack the deal, but reports from the Italian suggests that Spurs have blown away their rivals by putting a massive offer on the table.

According to reports from TMW, Spurs have tabled up a mouth watering €55 million (£48 million) bid to sign the highly rated Dutch centre-back.

Spurs have a healthy relationship with Ajax having signed Davinson Sanchez last season from them for a club record deal of £42 million, according to BBC Sport.

If Ajax accept Tottenham’s offer for De Ligt, he will become their record signing. To spend such a huge money on a hitherto raw talent only suggests Tottenham’s willingness to get the deal done. It will be a massive statement of intent from chairman Daniel Levy.

It will be interesting to see how things unfold from here on.
