15-year-old Ajax U-17 striker Julian Rijkhoff has reached an agreement for €130,000 with Borussia Dortmund for a three-year contract that will be signed when the right-footed Dutch prodigy turns 16 on January 25, 2021, according to De Telegraaf.

The 15-year-old was offered a new contract at Ajax but reports say there was no follow up between both parties.

As a product of the much revered Ajax Academy, that has produced some of the world’s best talents in world football, he has been in magnificent form this season. He made his debut last season for the Amsterdam club. The young talent has also registered seven goals in five appearances for The Netherlands’ U-15 side since his first appearance for the national side last year in January.

The center-forward has scored a remarkable 9 goals in the Dutch U-17 Youth League in just 4 appearances this season, while also racking up one assist in the process. His goal average of one every 40 minutes is the best in the league.
