Ajax team news

Schreuder has made several new signings to kickstart his reign in Amsterdam, including Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham Hotspur, Owen Wijndal from AZ, Francisco Conceicao from Porto, Brian Brobbey from RB Leipzig and Calvin Bassey from Rangers, the latter of whom has been likened to Virgil van Dijk by the club’s technical director, Gerry Hamstra.

Hamstra said: “Calvin got into professional football late at Leicester City.

“From there, like Jaap Stam and Virgil van Dijk did a bit in the past – he fought his way up.

“Calvin is an open personality and he has really taken off at Rangers.

“We are getting one of the stars of the Europa League final.

“At first he played at left-back but then Giovanni van Bronckhorst put him in the centre.

“He is a boy who has made great strides in a short time.

“We are in a situation at the club where a lot of players have gone.

“We looked at potential and got a player for more than we would normally pay – because he had to be a Champions League worthy replacement.

“The one-on-one replacements simply cost a little more than the guys for the future.

“Ultimately, you have ambitions. You want to become champion and take the next step in Europe.”
