The 23-year-old only returned to Ajax last summer, having been sold to Willem II in 2014 following five disappointing seasons at the Amsterdam Arena in his first spell where he struggled for first-team action.

Dijks has been in impressive form for Frank de Boer’s team and has subsequently earned a call-up to the Netherlands national side.

It is believed that Ajax will be looking to pick up around £10million for his signature, but the Eagles would face strong competition from Leicester City, who will be able to offer him Champions League football.

Newcastle have also been linked but the Foxes appear to be in the box seat.
