By Dominic Toner
Tottenham are one of the teams interested in Ajax youngster Kasper Dolberg, according to a report.
TransferMarketWeb claim that Spurs, Manchester City, Inter Milan and Napoli are tracking the 19-year-old forward.
It is understood that the attacker has caught the attention of Europe’s biggest clubs after a successful debut season for Ajax, where he has managed 20 goals across all competitions.
The report details that the Dutch side might be prepared to put the young sensational up for sale for £12.75million, despite his current contract keeping him at the club until 2021.
Dolberg has made a brilliant star to his senior career and been a star player for Dutch giants Ajax this season.

The Danish striker has forced his way into the starting line-up and is helping his side compete for both the Eredivisie and Europa League trophies.
He has made 44 appearances across all competitions this campaign, scoring 20 goals and supplying eight assists.
Football Insider verdict:
Spurs need to continue improving their squad in the summer if they are to stay at the top-end of English football and a back-up striker should be an essential. Dolberg could be a brilliant target for the north London club and looks a bargain price at £12.75million. Mauricio Pochettino purchased Vincent Janssen last summer, but his six-goal tally proves how he has found it difficult adjusting to the Premier League from the Dutch division. Some people may fear Dolberg suffering a similar fate, but the youngster has shown enough in Europe to suggest that won’t be the case. The 19-year-old attacker has scored five of his 20 goals this season in the Europe League and could be in line for the prestigious silverware.
