The Dutch champions are set to lose their current number one Jasper Cillessen, who is closing on a move to Barcelona.

He is heading to the Nou Camp as a replacement for Claudio Bravo who looks likely to join Manchester City, a move that could see Joe Hart depart the Etihad.

Ajax will naturally be on the hunt for a replacement for the Dutch international and it appears they are targeting one of his compatriots to fill the void.

According to the Daily Mail, they are interested in a move for Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul.

He has just a year left on his current deal at St. James' Park and manager Rafa Benitez has indicated he is willing to allow him to move on.

However, according to the report, a major stumbling block to any potential move is his current wage packet in the North East.

They claim he is on £60,000-per-week, a wage that Ajax cannot afford to match. Instead they may look to secure a loan deal with Newcastle subsidising some of that wage packet.
