Juventus are reportedly ready to pay $84 million for De Ligt's services, making him the second-most expensive defender in the history of transfers, behind only Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk.

There been speculation in Italy that the move may happen today so that De Ligt can be announced over the weekend and join Juventus on their Asian tour this summer.

Juventus target Matthijs de Ligt is "awaiting a possible transfer", Ajax have confirmed.
