Published

on

Ajax is one of the best talent hubs on the European continent due to the club’s over-reliance and tradition built around young players that have paid off over time.

 

In the last couple of seasons, Ajax has witnessed a growing exit of some of their best players  due to European interest.

 

From Sebastien Haller, Jurriën Timberand, Antony, to Ryan Gravenberch, some of the best Ajax players are currently on the list of the European transfer targets in the market.

 

Best current Ajax players in the European transfer market in 2022

 

1. Lisandro Martínez

Lisandro Martínez is one of the most valuable Ajax players. The 24-year old defender had a season of his life in the Dutch top-flight, where he was most often used as a Centre-back by Erik ten Hag.

 

Lisandro Martínez joined Ajax from the Argentine football club Defensa y Justicia in 2019, where he was a regular player in the first team. The stats are in his favour.

 

Currently linked to some of the biggest European powerhouses, Lisandro Martínez meets the standard.

 

Lisandro Martínez Ajax Stats 

The Argentine was one of the regulars under Erik ten Hag. In the Dutch league, he featured in twenty-four matches and made the Eredivisie Team of the Week nine times.

 

Impressive stats, Lisandro started 23 out of his 24 appearances for Ajax in the 2021/22 season. He makes an average of two tackles per game and makes 95 touches.

 

The Ajax defender is also effective in ball clearance and making interceptions with an 89% accuracy per game.

2. Antony

Antony

Quite an outstanding player, Antony is one of the essential Ajax players who successfully created an impenetrable midfield. The left-footed Brazilian joined the club in 2020 from the Sao Paulo youth setup.

 

Antony comes into the list of current best Ajax players due to his records since 2020. He has successfully cemented his position in the team.

 

As per Statistics for the 2021/22 season, Antony was involved in 23 league games where he started 21 of them. Impressively, he scored six goals and provided four assists.

One of the key areas Antony had been on the wishlist of some European football clubs is his technical abilities. He has successfully dribbled past opposition players, and about 50% of it has been successful.

 

Antony makes key passes at the rate of 1.7 and records 65 touches per game. On the other side, his accuracy per game is 89% which makes him one of the standout players at Ajax.

 

Antony is good at scoring goals with his left foot and has scored eight so far.

 

3. Steven Berghuis

Steven Berghuis

One of the reasons Ajax successfully conquered the Dutch league during the reign of Erik ten Hag is the strength of the Midfield, and a perfect case of such a dominating system is the presence of Steven Berghuis.

 

Steven Berghuis is a Dutch footballer who’s played in the top flight. The 30-year-old played 33 matches, making a record 29 starts. Most important, he scored eight goals and provided eleven assists in the 2021/22 season.

 

Steven Berghuis is a complete player and the ultimate solution for the Midfield duties. Although he’s 30 already, his consistency is far from getting worn out.

 

4. Jurriën Timber

Jurriën Timber’s defensive abilities have made him one of the top targets by Premier League clubs lately. The 20-year old Dutch defender has excellent potential and the will to succeed at any level.

 

In 2021/22, Jurriën Timber was such an essential player for Ajax even though injuries had made him sit out of action.

 

As per Statistics, Jurriën Timber made stunning contributions to Ajax’s defense. He made 29 starts out of the 30 matches played in the league. With over 90.8 touches, the young dutch defender was involved in most of the dangerous defensive duties.

 

He earned a place in the Dutch league Team of the week nine times. On the technical side, he makes 0.5 key passes, a 91% accuracy per game, 1.7 Interceptions per game, and clearance per game at 1.4.

 

5. Sébastien Haller

Sebastien Haller

Sébastien Haller’s West Ham United move in 2019 did not go down too well after much was expected of him due to his impressive stats at Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt.

 

However, Haller has been successful in the Dutch league with Ajax. The Ivorian, who moved to the Dutch league in 2021, could silence his critics by scoring 18 goals quickly.

 

In the 2021/22 season, Haller led the UEFA Champions League Top scorers chart with ten goals at the end of the group stages and could have gone beyond that with Ajax’s progression beyond the early knockout stages.

 

In the league, Haller scored 27 goals and provided seven assists – and apart from his goals, he was a team player.

 

6. Edson Álvarez

Consistency remains Edson Álvarez’s successful crusade in the Dutch league with Ajax. The 24-year old Mexican midfielder has successfully held on to his position in the first team.

 

Erik ten Hag has played Edson Álvarez in different positions, including as a defensive Centre back, a defensive right back, a defensive midfield and a central midfielder. 

 

Álvarez has no outstanding weakness ans is good at positioning and wins at aerial duels. In the 2021/22 season, he played 31 games, scoring five goals.

 

He is a technically gifted player and is constantly hitting 80% accuracy per game. Also, he makes about 2.0 tackles per game and has successfully intercepted balls in the Midfield.

 

7. Ryan Gravenberch

Courted by some of the biggest football clubs in Europe, Ryan Gravenberch continues to make the headlines following an impressive season at Ajax. The young dutch midfielder has 30 league games this season.

 

Ryan Gravenberch is a talent that has continued to grow. In the 2021/22 season, he was one of the leading players in the first team.

 

8. Noussair Mazraoui

Ajax’s most preferred option at right-back, Noussair Mazraoui, was outstanding throughout the campaign even though injuries prevailed at some point in the season.

 

The Moroccan defender is quite effective at right-back and has successfully blocked goal-scoring advances, which have been crucial to Ajax.

 

Which of Ajax’s current best players do you think would make the big-money move in the upcoming transfer window?
