As reported by ‘Voetbal International’, Ajax are interested in Joshua Zirkzee. The eleven-time Dutch U21 international is tied to FC Bayern until 2023. After rather weak years in Munich, the 21-year-old blossomed on loan at RSC Anderlecht last season. 31 direct goals involved caught the attention of Ajax.

According to the specialist magazine, however, all clubs will have to be patient: Bayern wants to wait and see how Robert Lewandowski develops before making a decision at Zirkzee.

Ajax is also there in other negotiations. Because in addition to Zirkzee, the Dutch are aiming for the commitments of Brian Brobbey (20) and Steven Bergwijn (24). While the former repeatedly emphasized that after a six-month loan to his Amsterdam hometown club he would like to stay permanently and leave RB Leipzig, all parties should agree in the poker game about the Tottenham striker.
