Marc Overmars, Ajax director of football, has hinted about the possibility of signing Tottenham centre-backs Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.
Both the players came through the youth ranks at Ajax, and Overmars has opened up on the possibility of signing them.
Belgian defender Vertonghen moved to Spurs from Ajax in the summer of 2012, while Alderweireld joining the north London club in 2015.
The pair are widely considered as one of the finest central defenders in the Premier League, but could they bidding goodbye to Spurs in the near future?
Both Vertonghen and Alderweireld have contracts with Spurs till 2020, and the possibility of returning to Ajax could be tempting for them.
