Ajax coach Frank de Boer insists they can cover the wage demands of Samuel Eto'o.

The released Chelsea striker is in talks with Ajax after pricing himself out of moves to West Ham United, Tottenham and Arsenal.

However, De Boer says Ajax are willing to smash their wage ceiling for the Cameroon legend.

He explained: "For some players you need to make an exception.

"He is also a free agent, so maybe we can do something."
