Tottenham had €50 million offer for Barcelona target Frenkie de Jong rejected

They will also benefit from the rising interest in De Jong because it will drive up his value. I think it will be good to spend at least another full season here, ' he said back in the summer.

"A lot has been written about him lately, so I've been watching how he plays at Ajax".

De Jong has been linked with Tottenham and Barcelona, but Wijnaldum has urged him not to rush things. After that he joined the second division Dutch side Jong Ajax in the summer transfer window of 2015-16 to get the opportunity to play more first team football.

With that in mind, it would seem to make sense that they are trying to move quickly to wrap up De Jong's future signing ahead of the competition, as suggested by Don Balon, but time will tell if they're successful in doing so as Ajax will surely want to keep hold of their young talent for as long as possible too.

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has issued a hands off warning for coveted Frenkie de Jong and ruled out the midfielder or any other players from the Amsterdam club leaving during the January transfer window.

The 21-year-old continues to impress for the Dutch giants, featuring as an ever-present in their starting line-up so far this season as they've made a positive start in the Eredivisie while qualifying for the Champions League group stage.

However, De Jong confirmed earlier this summer that he meant to play in the Champions League with the Dutch giants this season, ending talk of a €50 million (£44.5m/$58m) transfer, for now.

Tottenham also apparently made a bigger bid and met with the same response.

De Jong's stock has continued to rise in the Netherlands, and he has won two caps for his country, and is closing in on a half-century of appearances for the capital club.
