Newly-promoted Middlesbrough are close to signing Ajax winger Viktor Fischer for £5milllion, according to reports.
Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claim that Fischer, 21, is closing in on a move to Teesside after Boro saw their £5million bid accepted by the Eredivisie side.
The Dutch outlet also report that the Denmark international, who is part of the national squad for the forthcoming four-team Kirin Cup, has left the Danes’ training camp to fly over to Teesside to discuss the move.
Fischer, along with his agent, are expected in Middlesbrough in the next 24 hours to discuss personal terms.
The skillful wideman, who made the move to Ajax from Dutch side FC Midtylland in 2011, made 35 appearances for Ajax this season, scoring 10 goals as they narrowly lost out on the Dutch title to PSV Eindhoven on the final day of the season.
Boro coach Aitor Karanka has already unveiled his retained list and is now looking to add to his squad as the Teessiders prepare for their return to the top flight.
Jonathan Woodgate, Damia Abella and Rhys Williams have all been released.
