Ajax have reportedly offered midfielder Donny van de Beek a new contract in a bid to ward off interest from Tottenham and the rest of Europe’s elite this summer.

The 22-year-old is being monitored by Spurs as a potential replacement for Christian Eriksen, though they will have to compete with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Van de Beek was a crucial part of Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-finals this season and scored in the first leg of their last-four clash against Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

However, according to Dutch outlet Voetbalzone, Ajax director of football Marc Overmars is preparing a contract offer for Van de Beek in an effort to tie him down. 

Van de Beek only signed a two-year contract extension with Ajax in January and Overmars is wary of letting one of the club’s prized assets go.

‘He has gone through a stormy development and for that he must be rewarded. We don’t want to lose Donny,’ Overmars recently told De Telegraaf

Van de Beek won the Eredivise title with Ajax on Wednesday night and was asked afterwards where his future could lie.

He said: ‘Let it be clear that I have had a great season and I am very happy to play for Ajax. It will always remain that way.

‘You never know what happens, but I still have a contract. We will see it for the rest. I haven’t discussed it with anyone yet. ‘

During what has been a breakthrough season, Van de Beek has made 57 appearances in all competitions, scoring 17 goals and contributing 13 assists.
