Barcelona move closer to landing de Jong

According to Sport.es, Spanish giants Barcelona are getting closer to landing the signature of Frenkie de Jong. The Ajax youngster has been linked with a move to Spain throughout most of the summer transfer window, as the 21-year-old’s stock continues to rise. He first broke into the mainstream during his time with Willem II, before switching over to Ajax where he played a big role in leading the club to the Europa League final.

There is said to be a deal in place with the player regarding the move, with de Jong clearly being interested in the idea. However, Ajax are asking for €50 million from the Spanish champions, which could prove to be a stumbling block depending on just how willing they are to invest in him.

de Jong continues to rise up through the ranks of The Netherlands’ youth setup too, making two appearances for the under 21s team recently.
