Ajax urged to make new move for Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig

Ajax are making a new move for Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig.

A year on from a first attempt to take the midfielder on-loan, Ajax football chief Marc Overmars is trying again this week for Puig.

The youngster has been told to find himself a new club by coach Ronald Koeman, though the Dutchman has insisted it should only be on-loan.

And he and his staff believe Ajax would be the perfect move for Puig, who has now outgrown the Barca B team.

For his part, Puig would prefer to remain with Barca and fight for his place, but Koeman has made it clear there'll be little chances of playing should he stay.
