Ajax look at Odegaard signing

Ajax are looking to sign Real Madrid's young Norwegian starlet, Martin Odegaard this summer, after his successful spell in the Eredevisie with Vitesse this season.

After the success of this season for Ajax, several of their players will be departing, this is the unfortunate side affect of the financial power that the big 5 European Leagues have, with Frenkie de Jong already leaving for Barcelona for 75 million euros, and Matthijs de Ligt seemingl certain to leave, while Donny Van de Beek, Hakim Ziyech, Nicolas Tagliafico and Dusan Tadic have all been linked with moves away from the Dutch giants. 

This of course does mean that Ajax have serious funds to spend this summer. However, their policy is not to spend the big bucks and bring in already established players, Ajax much prefer having young players, which is something they have always been famous for producing.

Thus, it is Martin Odegaard of Real Madrid that they are looking at as a replacement for De Jong, with the Norwegian likely to cost around 20 million euros.

Odegaard spent the season on loan at Vitesse, and was certainly impressive, scoring 9 goals and assiting 12 times in the Eredivisie.

According to 'De Telegraaf', Ajax will sign Odegaard this summer, with Odegaard wanting to leave, as he doesn't get the game time he wants at Real. The decision for Zidane to make is whether or not to sell Odegaard or to loan him out once again.
