Mike Verweij and Valentijn Driessen, Ajax watcher and football chief of The Telegraph, have given an update about Ajax on the transfer market. Steven Bergwijn seems like a serious option for the Amsterdam club, but only when own players are sold.
‘Ajax is in the market for Bergwijn, but I think it is very expensive. If he can leave at all SpursVerweij said in the newspaper’s football podcast. “Maybe Ajax will eventually end up with a cheaper alternative, but they will certainly try to get Bergwijn.”
“I have heard that he is definitely on one to pick up as an attacker,” adds colleague Driessen. “Ajax thinks it can collect him for 15 million euros, but the asking price will be at least 25 million euros.”
