AJAX are weighing up a move for Davy Propper.

Key figures at the Champions League semi-finalists have discussed a bid for Albion’s Dutch international midfielder, The Argus understands.

They are keen to boost their squad for European and domestic challenges next season.

Propper is seen as the type of experienced figure they require.

Ajax will lose midfielder Frenkie De Jong to Barcelona this summer.

They have signed Romanian prospect Razvan Marin from Standard Liege as a longer-term project.

But they also see themselves as a re-emerging force with the means to sign players from the Premier League, following the path of Daley Blind and Dusan Tadic.

A well-placed source in Amsterdam understands Ajax scouts travelled to watch Propper last season, when he made 30 starts and scored his first goal for the Seagulls.

Head coach Erik ten Hag and technical director Marc Overmars are believed to be in favour of taking the former PSV midfielder back to the Netherlands after two seasons in England.

They are likely to be keeping a keen eye on his performances in the forthcoming Nations League.

Propper missed the end of the Premier League season through a hamstring injury but was passed fit to join the 23-man Dutch squad who face England in the semi-finals in Guimaraes a week on Friday.

Albion continue to be linked with a move for Portsmouth centre-back Matt Clarke although no offer had gone in as of yesterday afternoon.
