Marc Overmars: 'Samuel Eto'o keen on Ajax move'

Former Arsenal winger Marc Overmars says that Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o wants to join Ajax

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.
