The Holland worldwide has caught the eye of a slew of Europe's top clubs with a string of impressive performances for Erik ten Hag's side, who now sit in second place in the Eredivisie.
However, according to Paris-based Le Parisien, Ajax's €75m asking price for the 21-year-old is "prohibitive" due to Financial Fair Play concerns, and it's believed now that the story was planted to create an auction between other interested parties.
Now it appears he is going to miss out on another target - De Telegraaf are reporting that De Jong has made a decision to sign for PSG, in a deal worth €75 million. There are so many I look at, especially the midfielders.

The Israeli operation is expected to last for weeks, or even months. "Hezbollah knows that and Hamas knows it too". They told the IDF about it. "That enemy is called Iran", he said.
Given De Jong's budding reputation as a skilled passer, it is no surprise he enjoys how Pep Guardiola's sides play, whether they are his old Barcelona champions or his current Manchester City squad. Jorginho at Chelsea now.
"I like to watch the great players, the ones who are technically good and understand the game".
However, while the interest has continued to grow, De Jong is uncertain where he will be playing next season, as he has now claimed his primary focus is just on finishing the campaign well. There are five games to go until the winter break, I only want to think about the game against PEC this weekend and the next Champions League match against Bayern Munich. His future has been the subject of much speculation, with the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona all said to be keen the youngster. Then we will see. Maybe I'll stay for another year, maybe I'll leave. There are so many to learn from. But I am not sure.
