Barcelona will re-open talks with the agent of Matthijs de Ligt in a bid to finally complete a deal for the Ajax defender, according to a report.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to re-open talks with the agent of Matthijs de Ligt in a bid to finally complete a deal for the Ajax centre-back following weeks of speculation.

De Ligt's future has been the subject of much discussion, with Barca, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Manchester United and Liverpool all linked with the 19-year-old.

PSG are now believed to be the favourites for the Netherlands international as it is understood that the Ligue 1 champions are offering the best pay packet.

However, according to ESPN FC, Barca will make a final push to land the teenager by re-entering into talks with his agent Mino Raiola.

The Spanish champions are said to have already settled on a transfer fee with Ajax, but personal terms have not yet been agreed.

De Ligt, who helped Netherlands reach the final of the UEFA Nations League, captained his Dutch side to a league and cup double during the 2018-19 campaign.

The centre-back has already turned out on 117 occasions for the Ajax first team, meanwhile, despite the fact that he will not turn 20 until the start of the new season.
