Man City ahead of Chelsea in battle for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong

Manchester City and Chelsea are chasing Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

The Daily Star says Ajax's Dutch Under-21s international is valued at around £10m.

City boss Pep Guardiola wants cover for Brazil ace Fernandinho, 32, who is out of contract at the end of the season but is close to agreeing a new deal.

De Jong, 20, has also been scouted by City's Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea.

Guardiola also wants to add a centre-back and a forward to his already formidable squad.
