Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly had an offer for Netherlands international starlet Frenkie de Jong turned down, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Premier League side, who take on league leaders Liverpool on Saturday (12:30) in the English top-flight, have been linked with signing the highly rated Ajax midfielder.

The 21-year-old, who has two international caps for Holland, has already made 10 appearances in all competitions for the Eredivisie outfit so far this season.

De Jong, who started his career at Willem II, has scored two goals and provided nine assists in 47 first-team outings for Ajax overall, helping them reach the 2017 UEFA Europa League final against Manchester United.

The report suggests Spurs have had a €50million (£44.75m) offer for the talented central midfielder rejected.

The Dutch club have insisted De Jong is not for sale, with La Liga giants FC Barcelona also chasing the starlet’s signature.

De Jong is contracted at Ajax until June 2022.
