The Netherlands worldwide has been linked with top European clubs this summer but is now on the verge of completing his move to Serie A.

The Dutch centre-back has been linked with a move and Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United and Paris St-Germain all named as potential destinations.

Serie A champions Juventus are thought to be the favourites for De Ligt's signature and are reportedly close to a £71.6m deal.

De Ligt's future has been the subject of much speculation over the summer, with a number of Europe's top clubs having been interested in signing him at one stage or another.

De Ligt played a starring role for Ajax last season as they won the Eredivisie title and reached the Champions League semi-final.

The likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Barcelona had been keen on landing him, although it would seem that it's Juve that have won the race for the Netherlands worldwide.
