Manager Peter Bosz has been busy roaming South America this January for a replacement for Anwar El Ghazi, who departed Ajax for French side Lille this week.

However, today, rumours have re-emerged about the title chasers enquiring about the price for the Frisians’ Swedish forward.

Larsson, 23, has been influential this season in Heerenveen’s fine form. His seven goals and boundless creativity has helped the club to sit in a highly respectable fourth place in the Eredivisie.

Although Ajax still have eyes set firmly outside Europe, and it seems Larsson is only a realistic choice should they not obtain one of their other targets as the Swede carries a much higher price tag.

Larsson featured in Football Oranje’s team of the season so far. You can check out the rest of the line-up below…
