Ten Hag and Dumfries are both Dutch, so the new United boss will know exactly what the 26-year-old has to offer. Last season, he racked up nine goal contributions in 33 Serie A matches for the Nerazzurri while bombing down the right flank.
As if Ausilio’s agenda is not full enough with Chelsea and United, Spurs are also pushing hand to land Alessandro Bastoni and rival Chelsea for Martinez. Bastoni’s agent recently claimed that his player is happy in Milan and will not be moving on, but Antonio Conte seemingly views him as a priority target and is reluctant to give in.
As for Martinez, convincing him to ditch the San Siro for north London may be a tough sell if his primary role will be to serve as back-up for Harry Kane. Unless, of course, Spurs plan to offload the England captain over the coming weeks.
