Ajax Amsterdam undergoes a forced revolution!

What’s next after this ad

Usual catchphrase, Ajax Amsterdam cannot keep their talents for too long, which must therefore be exported abroad. With Frenkie de Jong (FC Barcelona) and Matthijs de Ligt (Juventus) in 2020 or Hakim Ziyech (Chelsea), Donny van de Beek (Manchester United) and Sergiño Dest (FC Barcelona) in 2021, the Lancers are used to see their talented players jump ship early. This summer, the situation is just as striking with nine elements who have already left the ship. While Zakaria Labyad (29) is still free, Przemyslaw Tyton (35, Twente) and Danilo Pereira (23, Feyenoord) left freely despite having a minor role in the squad. On the other hand, André Onana (26) also set sail for Inter Milan. A major club player since his arrival in January 2015 from FC Barcelona, ​​the Cameroonian has gradually lost his place following a doping case and competition from Remko Pasveer last season.

He made the choice to join Inter Milan where he will compete with Samir Handanovic between the woods. Also at the end of his contract, Moroccan right-back Noussair Mazraoui (24) left for Bayern Munich where he was joined by Ryan Gravenberch (20) for 18.5 million euros. Two big losses to which were added Sébastien Haller (28) who joined Borussia Dortmund against €31m excluding bonuses, as did Lisandro Martinez (24), who left for Manchester United against €57.37m plus €10m in bonuses. If we also include the transfer of doorman Dominik Kotarski (22) to Gorica for 1 million euros, the Dutch have already recovered no less than 107.87 million euros this summer. In addition to its sales, the club suffered the loss of its coach Erik ten Hag who will find Lisandro Martinez at Manchester United. The latter was replaced by Alfred Schreuder, his former assistant who was crowned Belgian champion with FC Bruges.

Recruitment accordingly

Arriving one year from the end of his contract, the Argentinian left side Nicolas Tagliafico (29) will also leave this summer. While a departure for Olympique Lyonnais is in the pipeline, the latter gives preference to the Premier League and La Liga. Regardless of his destination, his departure seems to have been confirmed for the Lancers. Ajax Amsterdam will have to be careful, because two other players can still leave in the event of big offers like Jürrien Timber (21) and Antony (22) who are notably followed by Manchester United. However, Ajax Amsterdam would like to count on them for the next season. The Godenzonens will be able to rely on Steven Bergwijn (24) who arrived from Tottenham this summer and became the biggest transfer in the history of the club with 31.25 million euros spent.

Besides the left winger, another Dutch international landed with Owen Wijndal. The 22-year-old left-back arrived against 10 million euros from AZ Alkmaar. Two reinforcements of weight therefore even if it will be necessary to recruit to replace Lisandro Martinez and Sébastien Haller while the arrival of a goalkeeper will not be a luxury. In addition to the current holder Remko Pasveer, the rumor Andriy Lunin (23 years old) was mentioned without follow-up. The next few weeks could allow us to see things more clearly. In defense, Devyne Rensch (19 years old) will take the lead after the departure of Noussair Mazraoui while Daley Blind (32 years old), Jürrien Timber (21 years old) and Perr Schurs (22 years old) offer guarantees in the axis. Besides rookie Owen Wijndal (22), the Lancers are thinking heavily of Nigerian Rangers defender Calvin Bassey (22).

Able to play in the axis and left side, he should land against 25 million euros. Alongside Edson Alvarez (24 years old), Davy Klaassen (29 years old), Mohamed Kudus (21 years old) and Steven Berghuis (30 years old) in the midfield, two young people will take the lead with Naci Ünüvar (19 years old) recently extended and Kenneth Taylor (20 years old) without forgetting the possibility Mohamed Ihararren (20 years old). Up front, Steven Bergwijn (24), Antony (22) and Dušan Tadić (33) will be executives while Mohamed Daramy (20) should play a little more. Two other reinforcements could intervene with the young Francisco Conceiçao (19 years old) who should cost 5M€ from FC Porto and Bryan Brobbey (20 years old) who should stay after his loan from Leipzig. The price mentioned should be around €17.5 million. On arrivals and departures, the transfer window is scorching for Ajax Amsterdam.
