Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer wants Barca transfer within three years

Ajax midfielder Riechedly Bazoer says he is aiming to move to Barcelona within the next two to three years.

Bazoer, 19, who made his debut for Netherlands last year against Wales, joined Ajax in 2012 despite being linked with Manchester City and Arsenal.

However, the midfielder has his eyes set on playing for the Catalan giants and revealed in December that they were also interested in signing him.

"I hope to be able to join my dream club Barcelona in two or three years. Their style of play suits me," Bazoer told Helden. "I know that I need to score more goals, but I am working hard to improve. I have to become even more important to the team.

"My ultimate dream is to be a key figure at Barcelona in five years' time or so. I want to win trophies. Hopefully, everybody knows me by then."

Bazoer came through PSV's youth academy before joining Ajax at the age of 16, and since then has gone on to make 46 appearances for the Dutch side.

He is contracted with Ajax until June 2020 and rejected the chance to join Napoli in January.
