Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is a player of interest for the club.

Barcelona already have a deal to sign Frenkie de Jong this summer and there are rumours in the Catalan press that De Ligt could join him.

Speaking to SER Catalunya, Bartomeu confirmed Barcelona’s interest in the 19-year-old, “His name is on the table. If there are such talents outside of Barcelona, ​​then we always look at it.

“It is a subject that is taken into account during our sporting planning, with which we start in March.”

De Ligt has a contract in Amsterdam until 2021 and Ajax reportedly want a fee of around €75 million for their captain.
