A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

According to a recent report by AS (translated by the Sun), Tottenham Hotspur are set to face stiff competition from seven other European clubs which include Real Madrid and Manchester United in pursuit of AFC Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek this summer. The same source has also revealed that the Galacticos are leading the chase, but Spurs are also desperate to recruit the Dutch prospect, especially if they lose Christian Eriksen during this ongoing summer transfer window.

Donny van de Beek’s Outstanding Campaign With Ajax

Van de Beek enjoyed the best year of his playing career at Ajax last season when he put in numerous match-winning displays to help the Dutch side reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. However, they were eventually knocked out by Tottenham Hotspur after giving away a three-goal lead in the second leg of their semi-final clash in Amsterdam.

The Dutch sensation will learn from his experience, which will enable him to be a better player in the future. For now, he needs to concentrate on what lies ahead in the next chapter of his career. It is no wonder that so many European clubs are lining up for Van de Beek’s services this summer as the Dutch attacking midfielder has all the skillset required to succeed at the highest level.

He featured in 57 matches for the Eredivisie outfit in the previous campaign, scoring 17 times while creating 13 assists in multiple competitions. He has also earned five international caps for the Netherlands thus far and has the potential to play an integral role for his nation in the coming years.

What Will The Dutch Rising Star Add To Pochettino’s Team?

Van de Beek primarily operates in the number 10 role for Ajax as he can make dangerous runs from midfield. He successfully added more goals and assists to his game last season, which goes to show that he is improving with each season. The Dutch dazzler is a potent goal-threat from midfield and can also pick out a killer pass in the offensive end of the pitch. 

Is Van De Beek Worth The Fight?

If reports are accurate that eight European clubs are battling tooth and nail for Van de Beek’s services, then it indicates that the Ajax star’s stock has significantly risen in European football. The Nijkerkerveen-born youngster had already proven his worth at the highest level last season, and at 22, he still has his best years ahead of him. 

The potential addition of a player of Van de Beek’s quality and potential will undoubtedly bolster Mauricio Pochettino’s attacking options at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Thus, we can conclude that the Dutch midfield ace is well-worth the fight as far as Spurs are concerned.
