According to Bild, Ajax failed with a bid to sign Joshua Zirkzee from Bayern Munich in the summer.

The 18-year-old has become a sensation in Munich after netting twice in his first two Bundesliga matches from the bench.

According to Bild, Ajax made several enquiries to sign the Dutch striker last summer, but Bayern Munich did not want to let him go.

Academy boss Jochen Sauer said: “We didn’t discuss inquiries for Joshua in the summer because he was important for our team in the 3rd division”

It is unclear whether Ajax wanted to loan Zirkzee or sign him permanently. He was also linked with ADO Den Haag.
