Ajax boss De Boer eager for Tottenham talks: A sleeping giant

Ajax manager Frank De Boer is ready for talks with Tottenham.

The Daily Mail says De Boer will hold talks with Tottenham about becoming their next manager - and he could bring Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp with him to White Hart Lane.

Spurs have begun identifying candidates to replace current boss Tim Sherwood, who is set to leave this summer.

"Spurs haven't had contact with my agent yet. They have approached Ajax, but that's it," said De Boer on Dutch TV.

"Spurs have let Ajax know they would eventually talk to me when the season's finished.

"After the last league game (against NEC on Saturday) I'll think about it. I'll talk to them and listen to what they have to say. I would like to add something to a club like Brendan Rodgers did at Liverpool.

"I see a perspective at Tottenham Hotspur, just as Liverpool and Newcastle United sometimes are, they are sleeping giants."
