Ajax Interested in Signing Williot Swedberg


According to Relevo, Dutch giant Ajax is reportedly interested in signing Swedish midfielder Williot Swedberg. The club is said to be considering making an initial bid for the 20-year-old talent. However, Celta Vigo, Swedberg’s current club, is not keen on releasing him at the moment.

Swedberg’s Playing Time at Celta Vigo

Swedberg has been struggling to secure regular playing time at Celta Vigo. Although he has a good goal record when coming off the bench, he has yet to establish himself as a consistent starter. Despite this, Swedberg is highly sought after in the market. Relevo claims that “many clubs” in Europe are closely following the young midfielder, with Ajax’s interest standing out.

Ajax’s Interest in Swedberg

Relevo reports that Ajax has been scouting Swedberg on multiple occasions and is now considering making a bid. The Dutch giants see the Swedish U21 international as one of the key figures in the “new Ajax” that will take shape this summer after a disappointing season. Celta Vigo acquired Swedberg from Hammarby in 2022 for around five million euros (approximately 58 million SEK). Ajax is rumored to be willing to match or exceed this amount, with a potential bid ranging from five to ten million euros (58-116 million SEK).


However, Celta Vigo is aware of the interest in their young jewel and has no intention of letting him go at the moment. Swedberg is under contract with the club until 2027, and they believe he has yet to show his true potential. Nevertheless, Ajax is expected to make an attempt to sign the talented midfielder.

The Potential Transfer and Hammarby’s Involvement

If Ajax manages to secure Swedberg’s transfer, Hammarby, his former club, will benefit financially. The Swedish club has a resale clause on the player, meaning they will receive a portion of the transfer fee. As they say, everything has its price, and Ajax seems determined to acquire the young midfielder.

In his time at Celta Vigo, Swedberg has scored four goals and provided one assist in 24 competitive matches. Despite his limited playing time, his performances have caught the attention of top clubs, with Ajax leading the race for his signature.

While Celta Vigo remains reluctant to part ways with Swedberg, the allure of Ajax’s project and the opportunity for more playing time might prove enticing for the talented Swedish midfielder. Only time will tell if Ajax’s pursuit of Swedberg will be successful, but the interest from such a prestigious club is undoubtedly a testament to his potential and abilities.
