Tottenham Hotspur reportedly join the race for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who has been strongly linked with Barcelona.

Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly joined the race for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong, although the Premier League club face a fight to snatch him from under the noses of Barcelona.

De Jong, 21, was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer transfer window, and it was claimed in July that the Catalan outfit were prepared to pay £44m for his services.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are still very much in the driving seat, but Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino is a huge fan of the Dutchman, and has joined the list of interested parties.

Tottenham did not improve their squad during the summer transfer window, but have already been linked with a January move for Porto's Hector Herrera.

De Jong, who is a Netherlands Under-21 international, scored once and registered nine assists in 26 appearances for Ajax last term.
