Ajax Sign Mexican Star Edson Alvarez

Ajax have announced an agreement with Club America for Mexico international Edson Alvarez, who is expected to sign a five-year contract.

The Eredivisie club added the agreement, which is reportedly for a fee around $17 million (£14m), is subject to a medical.

Ajax director for football Marc Overmars had previously talked up the possibility of the club moving for the Alvarez, saying the 21-year-old was a target for them regardless of the situation regarding Matthijs de Ligt, who has since had his move to Juventus confirmed.

"I think he has the right age - 21 years old, he's a regular starter for the Mexico national team and we know him very well because we've been following him for quite some time now,” Overmars said. “He's had good development, and he's versatile."

The Mexico international developed as a center back at the club level, but has since featured at right back internationally, though this summer saw him move into a holding midfield role for Tata Martino’s El Tri squad.
