Ajax to replace De Ligt with Timothy Fosu-Mensah

Faced with a realistic prospect of losing another one of their stars in the summer, Ajax have already started looking for replacements for Matthijs de Ligt.

Widely regarded as one of the most talented young defenders around, the in-demand Dutch international has already alarmed a host of Europe’s biggest clubs including Barcelona.

The Catalans are hoping Frenkie de Jong could persuade his teammate to join him at Camp Nou next summer but La Liga heavyweights will face tough competition for De Ligt’s signature.

Well aware they are in for a struggle to keep De Ligt around for much longer, Ajax are said to have identified Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah as the ideal replacement.

De Telegraaf reports that Ajax director of football has set his sights on the lad who was born in Amsterdam and who went through Ajax’s youth system prior to moving to Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Fulham.
