Ajax boss confirms that Chelsea target Tagliafico will be allowed to leave

Ajax manager Erik ten Hag has admitted that left-back Nico Tagliafico will be allowed to move clubs if an interested club is able to meet Ajax’s demands for the Argentinian defender. It is believed the Dutch giants want a transfer fee around €30m for Tagliafico amid interest from from Chelsea and Arsenal.

“The transfer market will start in August – the top leagues are now being played out, so the money flows are maintained,” Ten Hag told Het Parool. “The market value of players will be slightly depressed, but not much. Based on their performance and ambition, a number of our players also want to make the move abroad.”

“Agreements have been made with Andre Onana, Donny van de Beek and Nicolas Tagliafico, but it remains to be seen whether the market is indeed breaking loose. For Onana and Van de Beek, another year of Ajax could certainly be an option, for Tagliafico it is slightly different because of his age.” The 27-year-old Tagliafico joined Ajax 2.5 seasons ago from Independiente.
