The Sun is reporting that Tottenham are interested in a deal to sign the Netherlands international in the summer transfer window but could face competition from Ake’s former club Chelsea FC.

The Sun go on to add that Ake could be a replacement for Alderweireld, who is being linked with a potential move to Manchester United or Real Madrid.
