Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Donny Van Der Beek has all but confirmed the Real Madrid’s interest in him.

In a chat with Fox Sports, the 22-year-old Dutch international midfielder revealed that there’s interest in him.

Donny Van Der Beek has been linked with a €60m move to Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in recent days.

The Arsenal target is seen by many as the Plan B option for Real Madrid in the event that the Los Merengues don’t sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

French international Pogba is the top transfer target for Real Madrid but his €180m transfer fee is a big stumbling block in addition to the fact that Manchester United are reluctant to do a deal for him.

Arsenal target Donny Van Der Beek has enjoyed a rapid rise in the last year after he played a big role for Ajax Amsterdam in the last campaign.

Ajax Amsterdam won two major trophies namely the Dutch Cup title and the Dutch Eredivisie title.

The 22-year-old was also a key player for Ajax as they reached the semifinals of the Champions League before they were eliminated by Tottenham Hotspur in heartbreaking fashion following the last gasp strike from Lucas Moura.
