De Jong amid Barca, City and PSG links

Frenkie De Jong

The news of PSG's interest is of no major concern to Ten Hag, who insists his squad - including De Jong - are exclusively focused on staying in touch with Eredivisie leaders PSV by beating PEC Zwolle on Saturday.

The highly-rated midfielder has been the subject of much speculation over a move to a number of European heavyweights.

De Jong has been linked to the likes of Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City over the past few months, with Kylian Mbappe openly hoping the midfielder will make the move to the Ligue 1 champions.

Although PSG are indeed interested in de Jong, they do not intend to spend €75m, and the club is adamant that there is no deal whatsoever.

"There's no deal yet", Dursan told NOS. "That's guaranteed and it's all I can say right now".

"It would be great for Ajax, a huge compliment", the 48-year-old stated.

There is something of a renaissance in Dutch football, albeit it is not strictly abiding by its traditional strengths. I hear the stories but I just want to finish this season well'. He is already speaking French.

"If it's true, PSG is a very nice club, but there are many more nice clubs in the world".

"I think it's fantastic for the player himself, but also for Ajax".

He broke through into the first team during the 2017-18 campaign with a run of excellent performances, becoming a regular starter as they finished second behind PSV and qualified for the Champions League.

Even French sensation Kylian Mbappe was raving about the Dutch wonder-kid after going against him on global duty."He is a player who really impressed me during our two matches with the Netherlands", he told France Football.
