Among the positions where Spurs seek to upgrade is center midfield where Tottenham are short of numbers after the sale of Mousa Dembele in January.

Spurs have been linked with several midfield players including Ajax’s Donny van de Beek. The 22-year-old has had an impressive season with the Dutch giants and has been crucial to their unbelievable run in the Champions League this season.

The player who came through Ajax’s youth set up has established himself as a regular in the Dutch national side and has attracted the interest of several top European clubs.

According to a report in Football.London, Arsenal are set to compete with Spurs for Van de Beek’s signature in the summer. The report claims that Unai Emery views the Dutchman as the perfect replacement for Aaron Ramsey who will join Juventus in the summer.

Spurs fans will get the opportunity to watch Van de Beek up close when Ajax take on Spurs in the semifinal of the Champions League later this month.
