Tottenham Hotspur have been looking for defensive reinforcements this summer after conceding 63 goals during the 2022-23 Premier League campaign.
However, they face tough negotiations with the Bundesliga outfit as they have yet to settle on a fee.
According to the Daily Mail, Wolfsburg are demanding £43 million for a player they rate highly.
Van de Ven began his career in the Netherlands with Volendam before switching to the White and Greens in 2021.
Since he arrived at the Volkswagen Arena, he has made 41 appearances across all competitions.
The defender’s performances caught the attention of Tottenham, who offered £30m plus add-ons to secure his services.
The Lilywhites were hopeful that the offer would be enough to seal a transfer for the 22-year-old.
However, Wolfsburg are demanding a £43m fee for Van de Ven whose contract expires in 2027.
Spurs have already signed James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario and Manor Solomon this summer.
They have also made Dejan Kulusevski’s loan move permanent for £25m in this transfer window.
