The Catalan giants have been heavily linked with Matthijs de Ligt in recent days but they also have their eye on another Ajax talent.

Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Barcelona have identified Frenkie de Jong as a top target. They will make a move to sign him this summer but if that is not possible they may look into a deal which seals his signature but will keep him in Amsterdam for another season.

De Jong has made 26 appearances for Ajax this season but in the centre of defence as a libero. However, his future lies in the centre of midfield and Barcelona see him as a potential replacement for Sergio Busquets.

The 20-year-old has a contract at Ajax until 2022
