Werder Bremen reject opening offer for Davy Klaassen

Werder Bremen have rejected an opening offer from Ajax for 27-year-old Dutch midfielder Davy Klaassen, according to Bild.

The Eredivisie club are preparing a second offer for their former player, whom has officially handed in a transfer request at Werder Bremen, who are willing to allow Klaassen to leave, to cover the transfers of Leonardo Bittencourt and Ömer Toprak.

Ajax offered an initial €7m plus a further €5m in future incentives and whilst a second offer is unlikely to increase in fee, the Dutch side will pay a higher base price for the Dutchman.
