Tottenham have been linked with Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong for a while now, as it looks very likely that the 21-year-old midfielder will be leaving Amsterdam at the end of the season.

He is not known to long expansive passes, instead frequent short passes to control the tempo of the game, the same as 21-year-old Lyon man.



The man that Tottenham should focus on signing is Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele.



However, Pochettino may not want a like-for-like replacement for the former Fulham man, but if he does, Ndombele seems to be a much better fit than the Dutchman.

Of course, there are good players playing all over Europe, but in the pursuit of replacing the Belgian maestro, Ndombele may be a better fit.

While de Jong is probably equipped with a greater passing range, that is no necessarily Dembélé’s strength.

While this is a disappointment for Spurs in their pursuit in replacing Mousa Dembélé (who is expected to leave at the end of the season), there are other options that may actually be a better alternative.
