Manchester City, Tottenham and Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest in the De Jong, who made his worldwide debut last week, and a new round of bidding is expected in January.

De Jong's stock has risen further following his impressive performance for Netherlands in their 2-1 defeat to France in the UEFA Nations League at the weekend.

"Frenkie is a great player, he did a good job and makes it easier for us by the way he plays football", Wijnaldum said.

As he continues to gain experience at the highest level, coupled with the technical quality that he boasts to seemingly be a ideal fit for the Barcelona style of play, there are plenty of reasons as to why De Jong could be seen as a legitimate long-term solution for the Barcelona midfield. "I have already played a binding match for Ajax".

Tottenham and Barcelona will face competition from Real Madrid for the signature of Ajax wonderkid Frenkie De Jong, according to OK Diario, who report that the European champions have joined the race for the Dutchman.

‘Step change’ needed to address mental health in the workplace
More often than not, it is the fear of losing the job, or shame that prevents them from talking about their mental health. The study noted that "up to five million workers in Britain will experience a mental health issue this year".

Spurs became the first Premier League side in recent history to not sign a single player during the summer transfer window as Pochettino was left frustrated by chairman Daniel Levy's failed attempts to land his top targets.

"Frenkie is 21 years old, anything can happen".

He told Spanish publication AS: 'Barcelona can return in January if they want, but no player will leave'.

During the last summer transfer, Barcelona were said to have had their bid turned down by Ajax chiefs, although the Catalan giants will still go again when the January transfer window opens.

Tottenham also apparently made a bigger bid and met with the same response.
