Tottenham Hotspur have made contact with Feyenoord over the possibility of signing Manchester United target Daryl Janmaat in a £6 million deal this summer.
The Daily Mail reports that the north London club are keen on recruiting the highly rated defender, who will be brought in to provide competition for Kyle Walker at right-back next season.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino wants two viable options in each specialised position and has identified a worrying lack of depth in his squad at full-back.
Janmaat is viewed as a realistic transfer option for Tottenham, despite the fact the 24-year-old has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
New Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has been credited with an interest in his fellow Dutchman, having selected the Feyenoord star in his 23-man Holland squad for the forthcoming World Cup in Brazil.
Van Gaal still has a commitment with the Dutch FA until after this summer's showpiece tournament before beginning work in his new job as Manchester United manager.
Tottenham will be hoping that there is nothing in Manchester United's alleged interest, or else they could find it more difficult to secure Janmaat's signature.
