Tottenham have often looked for squad reinforcements in Amsterdam with Sanchez's arrival two seasons ago the latest deal the two clubs have struck.
And following Tottenham's heroics at the Etihad, they will now have a chance to pay their former club a visit.
The two sides will square off in the Champions League semi-finals, with Spurs travelling to Amsterdam on May 7.
And emotional Alderweireld was quick to point out Ajax can expect their former players soon.
He shared a picture from yesterday's game at the Etihad on Twitter, captioning it: "We are making history!"
Alderweireld then added "Ajax your boys are coming home," tagging the other former players of the Amsterdam outfit.
And the Dutch replied, sending a number of heart-eyes emoji.
All four of the Ajax boys played in the 4-3 loss to City, which fired Spurs to the Champions League semi-finals on away goals thanks to Fernando Llorente's late strike.
Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Eriksen started the game, while Sanchez replaced Danny Rose in injury time.

Four goals were scored within the first 11 minutes of the game, with Heung-Min Son's double cancelling Raheem Sterling's opener.
Bernardo Silva drew things level a minute after before Sterling struck again and Sergio Aguero put City in the lead on aggregate in the second half.
But late VAR drama saw Fernando Llorente score the deciding goal for Tottenham, before Sterling was denied a hat-trick in injury time.
