Ajax goalkeeper, Andre Onana, and left-back, Nicolas Tagliafico, are expected to leave the Dutch giants at the end of the season, according to reports from the Netherlands.

Spurs are expected to be in the market for a left-back with Danny Rose likely to leave the club permanently in the summer (Football.London) and Tagliafico is one of the options the club are said to be monitoring as a replacement (The Sun).

Reports have also suggested that Jose Mourinho wants to bring in a new goalkeeper to compete with Hugo Lloris for the number one spot, with Onana said to be interesting the Lillywhites (Daily Mail).

Voetbal International now reveals that Ajax are resigned to losing both Onana and Tagliafico in the summer after also agreeing to sell Hakim Ziyech to Chelsea.

Spurs Web Opinion

While we do need to upgrade on Gazzaniga, I don’t think we need to buy a number one this summer. I am comfortable with having Lloris between the sticks next season and so I would be happy for the club to prioritise additions in other positions. Left-back is one area in which we certainly need a new signing. However, I believe there are still a lot of question marks over Tagliafico and whether he will be a good fit for the Premier League.
