MANCHESTER CITY are reportedly in pole position in the race to snare Ajax starlet Sontje Hansen away from the Eredivisie.
The Citizens are one of a number of clubs keen on signing the 18-year-old striker who has starred at youth level for Holland.
According to Goal, Serie A sides Juventus and Inter Milan are interested in the teenager, along with Bundesliga club RB Leipzig.
But they state that it is City that are favourites to land him, with it alleged that he could cost as little as £6million as he enters the final year of his contract.
And Hansen has put potential suitors on red alert after he admitted he is unsure of what the future holds for him.
Speaking on a recent Instagram live chat, the forward said: "I don't know what Ajax's plan is.
"I still have a year left on my contract and they will have to offer me a new one before I can decide."
Prior to the coronavirus crisis ending the Eredivisie season, Hansen had featured in two games for Ajax's senior side.
His displays at international level for Holland are said to have caught the eye of a number of scouts.
Last year he helped Holland win the U-17 European Championship where he chipped in with three goals in six games – including a strike in the 4-2 win against Italy in the final.
And he stole the show at the U-17 World Cup later in 2019 after he helped Holland reach the semi-finals before they crashed out to Mexico on penalties.
He won the Golden Boot at the tournament having banged in six goals in seven outings, as well as providing three assists for his team-mates.
