Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has claimed that Samuel Eto'o is keen on a move to the club.
The Cameroon international was released by Chelsea at the end of last season and is available on a free transfer.
He has been linked with various clubs throughout the summer, but Overmars is confident that the Dutch champions can strike a deal with the forward.
"Samuel seemed very hungry to play for Ajax," Overmars told Voetbal International. "He is fit and has a great drive to succeed once again.
"We don't want to block the growing process of our talents like [Arkadiusz] Milik and [Richairo] Zivkovic, but if it is possible to sign a world class player like Eto'o, then why not? It will be fantastic."
Eto'o scored 12 goals in all competitions for Chelsea last season.
