Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag eyes moves for Ajax trio Jurrien Timber, Devyne Rensch and Kenneth Taylor, according to a report.

Ten Hag arrived at Old Trafford last summer from Ajax, and the Dutchman signed two players from his former club in his first window at the helm, bringing in Lisandro Martinez and Antony.

However, according to The Sun, three more Ajax players in the shape of Timber, Rensch and Taylor have been identified as possible signings for the club.

Timber was heavily linked with a move to Manchester last summer, but the 21-year-old ultimately remained in Amsterdam, signing a new contract with the Dutch champions.

The Netherlands international has again been a vital player for his Eredivisie club this term, featuring on 23 occasions in all competitions, contributing two assists in the process.

Timber has played 16 times in the league this season, while he started all six of Ajax’s matches in the group stage of the Champions League.

Man United are currently well-stocked in the middle of their defence, but Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones are set to leave on free transfers this summer, while Harry Maguire could also be allowed to depart.

In addition to Timber, Rensch is said to be a target, with the 19-year-old, who plays as a right-back, featuring on 20 occasions for Ajax this season, scoring two goals and contributing one assist.

The defender has already been capped at senior level by the Netherlands, while he has played 76 times for his Dutch club in all competitions, contributing six goals and registering five assists.
