Ajax are reportedly interested in Barcelona’s Carles Alena next season, according to Sport.

Barcelona and Ajax have done plenty of business recently, mainly the Frenkie de Jong deal. They’ve also been in talks for Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

The deal for Alena’s loan could come off the back of De Ligt’s move. Alena’s playing time will probably decline once De Jong comes in this summer. The doors are open for smooth negotiation this summer with Ajax wanting Alena.

Alena has been in the first team since January and has had regular playing time in La Liga since coming on board. There’s still a good chance that Alena stays at Barcelona next year, but if that changes the relationship with Ajax could spur a loan deal while the Barcelona midfield sorts itself out.
