FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with the 18-year-old centre-back, who has reportedly told Ajax that he is open to leaving this summer.

SPORT Bild are reporting that Borussia Dortmund are also in the running and want to offer De Ligt a springboard to the top. They also see the Dutch international as a perfect replacement for Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who is being heavily linked with Arsenal.

De Ligt has a contract with Ajax until 2021 and any interested club’s will need to match their asking price of €50 million.
