Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer is set to raid his old club Ajax for Jairo Riedewald.

Riedewald, who has been monitored by Everton and Tottenham, is one of Europe’s highly regarded young defenders.

The 20-year-old featured 23 times for Ajax last term, and played in the Europa League final against Manchester United.

De Boer gave Riedewald his Ajax debut in 2013 and is very keen on a reunion with the Dutchman.

He is set to become Palace’s second summer signing, following the loan capture of Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on Wednesday.

Riedewald has been chased by a number of clubs across Europe in previous months, but he could be confirmed as an Eagles player by the end of the week.
