Half of any fee paid for Dijks would go to Ajax as part of the deal to take the defender to Willem II last summer, and according to De Telegraaf, Celtic have offered €2 million for the 22-year-old. Ajax would only have to pay Willem II €1 million to match that offer, but this is reportedly more than what they are willing to pay.

Negotiations are set to continue, but if Willem II hold out for more money, then it could be Celtic who come out on top.
