Tottenham Hotspur could be set to make a move for Glasgow Celtic defender Kristoffer Ajer next summer, according to Norwegian outlet Sporten.
Since arriving at Parkhead in 2016, Ajer has won virtually everything that there is to win in Scottish football.
The reported Tottenham target is now a mature player and will be looking for a fresh challenge at this stage of his career.
The 14-times capped Norway international has been a regular for Neil Lennon’s table-topping Celtic side this season and has made 49 appearances in all competitions so far.
A move to Tottenham could be tempting to Ajer as it would allow him to player in the Premier League as well as under Jose Mourinho.
Spurs clearly need to make some major changes to their squad next summer.
They are struggling for consistency this season and are a shadow of the team that they were during the last five years under Mauricio Pochettino.
The defence of the North London side needs to be improved.
Jan Vertonghen is set to leave the club at the end of the season when he becomes a free-agent whilst Toby Alderweireld is above the age of 30.
Serge Aurier has never really lived up to expectations following his arrival at the club from PSG during the summer of 2017.
Whilst Ajer is untested in the Premier League, the Celtic enforcer does arguably have the potential to succeed playing in England’s top-flight and is unlikely to be expensive.
He is a young talent with potential to get better under the guidance of Mourinho.
