Ajax are keen on warding off the interest in Donny van de Beek by offering him a new contract.

Spurs, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are currently potential suitors for the 22-year-old in the bid to beef up their squad.

Van de Beek was a crucial part of Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-finals this season and scored in the first leg of their last-four clash against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

However, according to Dutch outlet Voetbalzone, Ajax director of football Marc Overmars is preparing a contract offer for Van de Beek in an effort to tie him down.

The Dutch giants are wary of losing the young prodigy with De Ligt likely to join De Jong in Barcelona this summer.

The sad story of Abdelhak Nouri

Do you remember Abdelhak Nouri? The talented youngster of AFC Ajax, who collapsed during a friendly match against Werder Bremen two years ago.

“He has gone through a stormy development and for that, he must be rewarded. We don’t want to lose Donny,” Overmars recently told De Telegraaf.

Van de Beek won the Eredivisie title with Ajax on Wednesday night and was asked afterwards where his future could lie.

He said: “Let it be clear that I have had a great season and I am very happy to play for Ajax. It will always remain that way.

“You never know what happens, but I still have a contract. We will see it for the rest. I haven’t discussed it with anyone yet.”

During what has been a breakthrough season, Van de Beek has made 57 appearances in all competitions, scoring 17 goals and contributing 13 assists.
