Ajax have confirmed that a deal has been reached with Club America to sign Mexican defender Edson Alvarez.

Ajax have been linked with the 21-year-old for weeks as they sought a replacement for Matthijs De Ligt, who has now joined Juventus.

On Friday, Ajax confirmed that an agreement has been reached with Club America for the defender, who is on his way to Amsterdam.

A medical and a few last details stand in the way of the €15 million deal being completed. Alvarez will sign a five-year deal.

Alvarez will compete with Perr Schuurs and Lisandro Magallan to partner Daley Blind in the centre of defence next season.
