With the Dutch centre-back giving the go-ahead for a five-year deal, Tottenham will now work towards finalising the transfer fee with Wolfsburg.
They have been proactive in the summer transfer window, with club chairman Daniel Levy backing new manager Ange Postecoglou with several new signings.
Van de Ven could be next in line following the arrivals of Guglielmo Vicario and James Maddison, while Fulham’s Manor Solomon is also on the verge of joining Spurs.
The 22-year-old enjoyed an excellent breakout campaign in the Bundesliga last season, making 33 appearances for Wolfsburg.
He is known for his excellent ball-carrying abilities, which makes him a good fit for Postecoglou, who prefers a possession-based attacking style of play.
Spurs must revitalise their defence due to the uncertain futures of Japhet Tanganga, Davinson Sanchez and Eric Dier.
Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Edmond Tapsoba is also high on the Spurs’ wishlist following his impressive campaign last term.
Clement Lenglet has been heavily linked with a return to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after spending the last season on loan with the club.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has stated that a deal could be reached soon with Spurs for the permanent sale of the French defender.
