Barcelona have confirmed that they are considering a move for Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt.

Having already sealed a deal for 21-year-old midfielder Frenkie de Jong from the Dutch club for €75 million (£65m/$85m), Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed he wants to sign DeLigt, 19.

“His name is on the table,” Bartomeu revealed in an interview with radio station SER Catalunya via Spanish publication Marca.

“Where there is such talent away from Barcelona, we’re always looking at them.

“It’s a topic that will be discussed in our sports planning which begins in March, with De Jong we felt we had to move quickly because there were many clubs that wanted him.”

Is this is a wise move for Barcelona? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments section.
