Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt is widely regarded as one of the best young players on the European football scene.
It’s not surprising that several major European sides including Arsenal want to sign him.
The Ajax Amsterdam center back has previously been linked with a move to Arsenal.
The Gunners have made the signing of a new center back top priority ahead of this summer’s transfer window and Matthijs De Ligt could be an option for the North Londoners.
Apart from the Gunners, other European clubs like Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Juventus, Manchester City, and Barcelona have all been linked with a move for the young Dutch international defender.
Italian news outlet Calciomercato claim that Italian champions Juventus will use their Champions League tie with Ajax to lay the foundation for a transfer for De Ligt.
During the Champions League draw on Friday, Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam were pitted against the Old Lady.
In the last round of the competition, both Ajax Amsterdam and Juventus managed to overturn first-leg deficit against their opponents.
Ajax Amsterdam overturned a 2-1 home loss deficit to thrash holders Real Madrid 4-1 and seal a 5-3 aggregate win in their last 16 tie, while Juventus overturned a 2-0 away deficit to secure a 3-2 aggregate win by beating Atletico Madrid 3-0 in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.
