Tottenham Hotspur reportedly identify Ajax's Hakim Ziyech as a replacement for Christian Eriksen.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Ajax attacker Hakim Ziyech as the Premier League club prepare for life after Christian Eriksen.

Manchester United are said to be weighing up a January move for Eriksen, who will see his contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium expire at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

According to 90min, Spurs are already putting plans in place for the Dane's departure, and Mauricio Pochettino's side are keen on a deal for Ziyech.

The 26-year-old played a key role in Ajax winning a league and cup double last term, while he also impressed as the Dutch giants reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

This season, the attacker has contributed six goals and 15 assists in 21 appearances in all competitions, including three assists in last week's Champions League clash with Chelsea.

Tottenham have only collected 14 points from their 12 Premier League matches this season, which has left them down in 14th spot in the table heading into the international break.
