Tottenham have been linked with a jaw-dropping £50million bid for Ajax teen sensation Matthjis de Ligt, and Spurs fans would take him in a heartbeat – even if it means losing Toby Alderweireld.

Football.London claims that Tottenham are plotting a swoop for the 18-year-old centre-back, although rivals Arsenal and Barcelona are also after the Netherlands international.

The report also claims that after leaving their business until late in recent windows, that Pochettino could try and wrap up this deal early to ensure that Tottenham land their man.

That’s music to the ears of Tottenham fans, who are excited at the prospect of the teenage hotshot heading to their new stadium next season.

One fan said it could be a “good summer” and said that he would “100%” take De Ligt if it meant contract rebel Alderweireld leaving.

Another said it would be “amazing” if Tottenham ended up with two of the most promising young centre-backs in football, De Ligt and Davinson Sanchez.

Overall, De Ligt is a player that Spurs fans would love to see in the summer, although one fan said he hoped it wouldn’t push Juan Foyth down the pecking order.

Here are the best reactions from excited Tottenham fans:
