Barcelona are bookies’ favourite to sign another Ajax superstar



Betfair has dropped the odds on Barcelona signing Ajax and Holland midfielder Danny van de Beek from 34/1 to 3.5/1, putting them ahead of PSG at 6.5/1.

Barcelona have already secured the services of Ajax star midfielder Frenkie de Jong, signing the 21-year-old for 86 million euros in January.

Now young Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt is reportedly set to join De Jong at the Camp Nou. This Tuesday Catalan TV station Esport 3 reported that that the 19-year-old’s agent, Mino Raiola, had met with Barcelona representatives over a month ago in Montecarlo to conclude a deal.

But it seems Barcelona are not done raiding the Ajax treasure chest just yet. El Blaugrana have their sights on signing a third youngster from Ajax who also played an integral role in the Dutch club reaching their first Champions League semi-final since 1997.
