The suggestion is that the 21-year-old is being considered as an option for the January transfer window to add depth at right-back:
[CalcioMercato] | Tottenham Hotspur officials are monitoring Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui ahead of a potential January transfer.

However, many Spurs fans don’t feel that depth is what is actually needed, claiming that they should be looking for a high-quality right-back who can be an unopposed starter instead.
The club has had its fair share of right-back issues since the sale of Kieran Trippier with many fans having lost their patience with Serge Aurier, especially after he fouled Sadio Mane in the box to surrender a point against Liverpool.
Were Tottenham too quick to sell Kieran Trippier?
Mazraoui has started 3 Eredivisie games for Ajax this campaign, coming off the bench twice, averaging 1.6 tackles, 0.8 interceptions and 2.2 clearances per games, as per WhoScored.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the report, including posts from sceptical Spurs fans, can be seen below:
Depth not the problem, quality is.

Depth?? We just need 1 player who can play right back

We’re about to poke around every rb in Europe

Depth? There are about 4 players at Spurs pretending to be right backs at the moment

Depth or an actual RB
