The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting a rather busy summer for Mauricio Pochettino and company, bidding to change their title challenge into a championship parade.
Few would argue that Spurs’ starting XI isn’t amongst the best in the league, though those from Hotspur Way could certainly do with a few astute additions here and there to round out the squad.
Having enjoyed previous success when buying from de Godenzonen over the years – with both Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen proving to be wonderful signings – Tottenham’s interest could once again return to the Dutch capital.
The 25-year-old Oranje international is understood to be a target thanks to his versatility. Able to operate in either central defence or at full-back, Ajax’s vice-captain seems like an attractive option for our north London locals.
Spurs are believed to have a strong working relationship with Ajax and the punters propping up the bar hope Veltman can follow the likes of Eriksen and Vertonghen to success.
