Tottenham want to sign Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that Spurs are keen on a move to try and bring the defender to White Hart Lane this summer as Mauricio Pochettino looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The Argentina international has been in solid form for the Dutch outfit this season and has scored one goal and made three assists in 21 league games so far.

According to the same report, Ajax are prepared to “cash in” on Tagliafico this summer, despite him having two years left on his contract.

The same article says that the likes of both Arsenal and FC Barcelona are also interested in landing the defender.

Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be linked with a number of players this summer as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of their first season at their new stadium.

Before that though, they will return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool FC.

The Lilywhites are third in the table and only one point clear of fourth-placed Arsenal with eight games left to play.
