Highly rated defender Matthijs de Ligt is not a new name when it comes to speculation of interest from Tottenham Hotspur in his services, but the beginning of the week saw a claim that we had already made a firm offer for him – but we saw it rejected.

De Ligt remains a regular name on the rumour mill even though the window is now closed, and Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claimed on Monday that in August we had submitted a 50million Euro bid for the 19-year-old Ajax defender but it was rejected out of hand.

It’s claimed that Barcelona are now in the driving seat come the January window, but whether Spurs will return with an uplift in our offer remains to be seen – it will only intensify Toby Alderweireld speculation though as it’s not difficult to assume the club and manager Mauricio Pochettino identified him as a long-term replacement.

Money talks in football – will Pochettino’s ring-fenced budget stretch that far?

  • De Ligt, De Jong, Milenkovic and Ndombele great players don’t expect Levy to sign any of those he isn’t capable.

  • I think Spurs should buy all of the players that the media associates us with.

    Regardless of whether or not they are available. In spite of them perhaps preferring Real, Barca, Man U or Huddersfield Town. And, without any care about who our manager may want and whether or not the club can afford them…

    I won’t name names. Unless you pay me to… Or, I start writing for a Spanish/Italian/German/Dutch rag or the ever-reliable know-it-all Sun!

  • It’ll be the same old story im afraid,linked with so many and not managing to bring even one in!

  • You are probably right there John Taylor, but is the word “linked” another word for rumour, gossip, media make it up as you go bull***t, who knows. COYS
