Last week Ajax coach Frank de Boer spoke of his eagerness to complete the deal for the striker, who has scored five times in 22 Eredivisie appearances this season.

De Boer said, “He would be a good player for Ajax. He has all the qualities to be a good striker and has additionally become accustomed to Eredivisie football.

“With us he can take his next steps, for example with help from Dennis Bergkamp.”
