According to Estadio Deportivo, Ajax face competition from a number of clubs to sign Atletico Madrid winger Rodrigo Riquelme.

Earlier this season, the 20-year-old was linked with several Eredivisie clubs, with Ajax the most concrete.

However, Estadio Deportivo is reporting that Ajax are not the only interested club, with Spanish sides Real Madrid, Real Betis, and Valencia all interested. Scottish side Celtic have also been credited with interest in the past.

Riquelme is in talks with Atletico Madrid over a new contract, but with no agreement reached there are several parties waiting to swoop.

The forward has made two appearances for Atletico’s first-team this season.
