Gundogan key to City's De Jong move

Ajax are reportedly willing to sell Frenkie de Jong to Manchester City if Ilkay Gundogan is included in the deal.

Netherlands international De Jong is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in the Eredivisie and there are said to be a number of clubs, including Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, that are showing an interest.

Defending Premier League champions City have also thrown their name into the mix and it is claimed director of football Txiki Begiristain is pushing ahead in an attempt to land the midfielder.

Reports suggest an offer around £80million would be required to tempt Ajax into selling although the possibility of a player heading to the Johan Cruyff Arena could reduce the price slightly.

It is thought Germany international Gundogan is wanted by the Dutch outfit and they would be willing to let De Jong leave, either in January or the summer, if the 27-year-old was included in the move.
