Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt is one of the most exciting young prospects in European football and several clubs are on his trail as a result.
Premier League clubs are not left behind in the chase for the Dutch international centre back with the big SIX keen to sign him.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are all interested in the £50m-rated young defender.
According to the publication from Sunday Mirror, Arsenal and the other aforementioned five clubs have been put off a possible transfer for De Ligt due to the fear of dealing with his agent.
Super agent Mino Raiola is the young centre back’s representative and he has a reputation for being a tough customer during negotiations.
Arsenal found out how difficult is it to deal with Mino Raiola during the transfer that took Armenian international playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan to the club.
Mkhitaryan signed for the Gunners at the start of last season in a swap deal which saw Chilean national team star Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester United.
Premier League clubs have not contacted Ajax over the availability of Matthijs De Ligt but other major European clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Juventus have made an enquiry for him.
Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona are also interested in the 19-year-old.
