Tottenham move for Ajax star Kenneth Taylor one to watch

Tottenham Hotspur have been credited with an interest in Ajax midfielder Kenneth Taylor at Hotspur Way.

Ajax midfielder Kenneth Taylor is a player that Tottenham Hotspur may want to keep an eye on in 2024, according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who gives GIVEMESPORT an internal claim on the star’s future.

The team led by Ange Postecoglou has had a respectable start to the 2023–24 Premier League season. He will, however, believe that a recent slump in performance has tarnished the season’s enormously encouraging beginning.

Spurs, who finished ninth in the top tier in the 2022–2023 season, hope to return to the Champions League the following season after missing out on qualifying for any kind of European competition at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. In order to prepare for a demanding winter schedule, Postecoglou believes his Lilywhites team can weather their present injury issue.

Tottenham’s interest in Kenneth Taylor

Spurs’ successful 2023–24 campaign has been primarily attributed to the midfield duo of Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma, with James Maddison filling the number ten position in front of them. In the middle of the park, Spurs appeared to be in excellent shape thanks to Rodrigo Bentancur’s comeback to play in October. But Tottenham might need extra depth at the position after the Uruguay international and Sarr suffered injuries, and Bissouma was suspended for one game.

Tottenham began the season with a perfect record of 10 games; however, a shaky run of results in November and the beginning of December has left them in fifth place, three points behind Manchester City in fourth place, and seven points behind league leaders Liverpool. Consequently, it’s not surprise that Spurs are focusing on the winter transfer window of 2024.

Aston Villa and Newcastle United are reportedly interested in Ajax’s Taylor as well as Tottenham, according to TEAMtalk. The 21-year-old, who has established himself as a regular fixture for the Eredivisie giants during the 2023–24 season, has already been scouted by Manchester United and City. Although Taylor was reportedly hesitant to leave Ajax in January, a move in the summer of 2024 might tell a different tale.

Dean Jones on Kenneth Taylor to Tottenham

Jones has hinted that Tottenham would find it challenging to finalize a deal for Taylor and that the drama might last until the summer. The near to £20,000-a-week earner is vital to Ajax’s season, and they do not want him to leave in January, according to the transfer insider. Smith stated to GIVEMESPORT:
