Ajax are expected to sign Steven Bergwijn this summer.
The Dutch forward is struggling for minutes at Tottenham Hotspur and express his desire to leave the North London club in search for regular minutes.
Ajax made an offer of £15 million for the former PSV winger but Tottenham wants £21.5m for the Dutchman.
De Telegraaf journalist Mike Verweij believes Ajax could break their club-record fee to sign the Spurs winger.
Verweij told De Telegraaf: “That deal may take some time, and it has to do with several factors.
“Daniel Levy is a very difficult negotiator, but also, accounting-wise, it seems interesting for Ajax to sign him after July 1st. So sell before and buy after July 1st, so you’re in two different financial years; Ajax can therefore write better figures.
“I think the fans will have to be patient for a while before Bergwijn arrives, but I am almost certain that he will come.
“Clearly, he’s the absolute best [for Ajax manager Alfred Schreuder]. Ajax is going to break the record price, which was the €25m purchase of Haller.”
