Ajax’s Donny van de Beek
The stylish Dutch international Donny van de Beek is ready to follow the path of former Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen and play in the Premier League. Van de Beek looks to have the range of passing and quick feet, perfect for the English game.
The Sun reports a possible move to North London as Mauricio Pochettino believes he can help bridge the gap between themselves and the top two of Liverpool and Manchester City.
Ironically, it could be Eriksen he replaces as the Spurs midfield schemer has been vocal of late of his desire for a new challenge and was last week quoted in the Danish Newspaper Exstra Bladet ” I have the deepest respect for everything that is happening at Tottenham and it would not be something negative to stay. But I have said also that I would like to try something new.”
Spurs could face competition from Man United for van de Beeks’ signature if United do sell Paul Pogba. The mercurial Frenchman has struggled to gain the love of the Manchester United faithful after throwing in some lackluster displays of late, after an energetic start under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his appointment. Van de Beek could be the perfect replacement.
