The Dutch giants are among those believed to be leading the chase for the highly-rated teenager.

They are not the only ones looking to do a deal, though, with Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all reported to be keen.

Muric will see out the 2013/14 campaign in his native Croatia, but will then be on the move after shunning the offer of fresh terms at Dinamo.

It had been suggested that he had given his word to Ajax that he would complete a switch to Holland, but the Eredivisie outfit admit that they have no deal in place.

Technical director Marc Overmars told Index: "Muric is wanted by many clubs - everybody wants him.

"He really is a great talent and will be a free agent in the summer. But he is not yet ours."

Meanwhile, another Croatian teenager, Hajduk Split midfielder Mario Pasalic, has confirmed that he will be linking up with Chelsea in the summer, with deal having been struck at the end of January.

He told Slobodna Dalmacija at a ceremony commemorating Hajduk's 103-year anniversary: "The Hajduk jersey is sacred and I will miss it in the summer when I go to Chelsea."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
