CM: Milan, Inter and Liverpool all in the running to land €30m-rated Ajax man – the situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter are both interested in talented young Ajax centre-back Perr Schuurs, according to a report.

The Rossoneri continue to be linked with a number of central defender by the media, with that being an area the management are understood to be keen to address having failed to sign any of their summer targets in that position.

According to Calciomercato.com, both Milan clubs have set their sights on Ajax’s 20-year-old sensation Perr Schuurs, a player who is understandably drawing comparisons to Matthijs de Ligt.

He is physical, technical, has an excellent sense of position and always plays with his head up, something which we have come to expect from players who emerge from Ajax’s impressive academy.

Inter have put Schuurs’ name at the top of their wish list, but the competition is strong. In addition to Milan – who will sign two centre-backs before the 2021-22 season – the strong interest of Liverpool must be recorded.

Ajax are not currently considering selling him, but the fact his contract expires in 2022 could leave them with a dilemma. For now Schuurs’ price tag is €30million, but that could change significantly given the effects of Coronavirus on football finances.
